Espanita Cortez

by Paul Colin

Espanita Cortez dancing against a black background.

Margeurite Anita Cortez was actually born near Paris, but studied in Madrid and developed a liking for Spanish-style dance, so she affected an appropriate stage persona. According to Colin, she was his mistress for a time. She appeared as a dancer at the Paris Opera and also in several films. In the design, Colin creates an almost shimmering effect using only white for highlights and mustard for shadows, all against a stark black from which the letters of her name are conspicuously dropped out.
