Illustrator Nathalie Lecroc coming to Esse

Posted By on Thu, Oct 26, 2017 at 12:33 PM


Esse Purse Museum hosts “Petite Anthologie de Sacs: An Evening with Nathalie Lecroc,” with the French illustrator of women's handbags and their contents, from 6-8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27. At the event, Lecroc, who has been illustrating purses for two decades, will reveal the contents of museum founder Anita Davis' purse and draw live at the event.

On Saturday, Oct. 28, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Lecroc will illustrate live at Esse. Esse is also raffling a chance to have Lecroc paint a purse at a brunch Sunday, Oct. 29, at the Capital Hotel.

Tickets to Friday evening's event are $25. Raffle tickets are also $25 and may be purchased at Esse or at 916-9022 through 4 p.m. Friday. The winner will be announced Friday night. The winner must be available and willing to provide the purse and its contents to the artist at 9:30 a.m. Sunday.

Lecroc has worked on her book “Petite Anthologie de Sacs" for two decades, asking women for permission to draw their bags and the contents. Her goal is to make 1,001 drawings. She has been commissioned to make drawings by several companies, including Chanel, which took her to major U.S. cities to paint the contents of their customers' bags.

“Miss Lecroc’s work aligns with ESSE’s belief that a handbag and its contents are extensions of a woman’s essence,” Davis is quoted in a news release about the evening and a celebratory brunch on Sunday, Oct. 29.

The new street would serve as relief from traffic to and from the interstate, to be concentrated at Fourth Street.
