About This Item

Original Donald Brooks fashion design sketch of Mia Farrow as Daisy Buchanan for the 1974 film production of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. One page pencil drawing with watercolor detail of a moonlit sky, the drawing features Farrow in full in "a wispy delicate dress of white and pale grey chiffon that moves against the body" as well as details of her family pearls, diamond bar capelet pin, pearl drop earring, and brocade t-strap dancing slipper with Donald Brooks' inscription in pencil, "Mia Farrow as Daisy Buchanan 'The Great Gatsby' Donald Brooks." In fine condition. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 27.5 inches by 22.5 inches. An excellent piece featuring the iconic Buchanan in the classic film The Great Gatsby. American fashion designer Donald Brooks designed over 3500 costumes for the stage and film; his awards include The New York Drama Critics Award, a Tony nomination, and the Emmy Award. Based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 novel, the 1974 film version of The Great Gatsby featured Mia Farrow as Daisy Buchanan and Robert Redford as the title role of Jay Gatsby. The Rosecliff and Marble House mansions in Newport, Rhode Island, were used for Gatsby's house while scenes at the Buchanans' home were filmed at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England. The film won two Academy Awards for Best Costume Design and Best Music.
