These fine illustrations were done to advertise eyewear brand, Oliver Peoples who joined with the Cary Grant Estate to create a line of optical and sunglasses, inspired by the frames Cary wore in North By Northwest.
Cary’s widow, Barbara Grant Jaynes and his daughter Jennifer helped design the glasses in 2019. This was the first time that Cary’s name or likeness was loaned to any brand.
The glasses have a CG monogram and prices range from $300 to $600.
These two paintings of Cary are by artist Tony Stella (www.tony-stella.com). This artist specialises in movie posters and cover art. Here are some samples of his Classic Hollywood work.
