Marcos Cotti Lorango Jr.



In addition to painting the portraits of some of the world's most notable celebrities, including Orson Welles and Marlene Dietrich, Cotti - as he was known - began his relationship with Josephine at sixteen when she asked him to sketch her while performing. These are some of the many costume designs he would create for her over the course of their friendship.

1949, le projet dessiné et la robe réalisée…

Costumes dessinés par Eric de Juan (La Havane, Cuba), 1949, Anna Wintour Costume Center (anc. The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute), New York.

« The sketches seen here for costume designs for the legendary Josephine Baker are dated 1949. While it is unclear if these sketches were ever actually realized, the dates mesh well with Baker’s touring schedule during this period. In 1949, she returned to the Folies Bergère stage that had made her a superstar twenty-three years earlier. After a short break, she embarked on a 1950-1952 tour of the United States, Cuba and South America. de Juan’s operations were in their heyday at this time, and as Baker was a well-known consumer of haute couture—Balenciaga, Balmain and Dior all designed clothes for her—it is conceivable that Baker would have enlisted the services of Havana’s top fashion designer to costume her tour. » (Source :
