Original Costume Drawing of a Man in a Brown Coat by Raoul Pene Du Bois
He designed both the sets and costumes for Du Barry was a Lady, Panama Hattie, Lend an Ear, Alive and Kicking, New Faces of 1952, Plain and Fancy, Bells are Ringing, and Irene. Du Bois was nominated for and won a Tony Award in 1953 as scenic designer for Wonderful Town; nominated again in 1960 and 1964 for Gypsy and The Student Gypsy; was again a Tony Award winner in 1971 as costume designer for No, No Nanette, and nominated two more times, 1975 and 1980 as costume designer for Dr. Jazz and Sugar Babies. Walter Kerr, critic for the New York Times, described the visual impact of No, No Nanette as "an explosion of Halloween colors, whorls and zigzags, forever putting psychedelic to shame."
Films he worked on include sets and costumes for Kitty, Frenchman's Creek, Louisiana Purchase, and Lady in the Dark—the latter two earning him Oscar nominations for Best Art Director (color) in 1941 and 1944. Most works were in an intimate, small scale, often somewhat irregularly trimmed and on a wide variety of support material such as mat board, stationery, tracing paper, etc. Most works date between the 1930's and 1970's with the biggest concentration from the 1950's and 1960's.
