NEW YORK – In several of its recent previous sales, Capsule Auctions has offered property from the estate of the American fashion designer Geoffrey Beene (1924-2004). Its LX: Fashion, Art and Estates sale, set for Thursday, September 7, will provide 60 additional Beene lots, the proceeds of which will benefit the Geoffrey Beene Cancer Research Center at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

Seven among the dozens of Beene-related lots are devoted to fashion illustrations by Jesper Nyeboe, who was also known as Sven Jesper Nyeboe (1944-1989). Born in Denmark, he earned a master’s degree in art history from the University of Copenhagen and served as an assistant curator in the department of prints and drawings at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Copenhagen before bagging the art-institutional life and heading to Manhattan to find a place in the fashion industry.

He worked for Anne Klein and Gloria Vanderbilt and briefly ran an eponymous label in the late 1970s, but he spent the bulk of his career with Beene, from 1968-1976 and also from 1980-1987. His illustrations benefit from his academic knowledge and his curatorial experience, ranging beyond the standard image of a dress on a model on a blank background (though he could, and did, render such drawings) to create images with colored backdrops and even landscapes.

Estimates for the Jesper Nyeboe lots range from $300-$500 up to $1,500-$2,500 for a 57-illustration lot that contains a drawing with a well-realized outdoor scene.
