The "Big Eyes" Joan Crawford Painting
A recent movie trailer actually helped answer an artist question that I've had for a while. A few days ago, I saw the trailer for the new Amy Adams film "Big Eyes," a Tim Burton biopic about Margaret Keane, the legendary kitsch artist who painted the famous "big eye" paintings of animals, mothers, kids, anything. Keane's story is so interesting because her husband actually took credit for her work for years until she later sued and divorced him. I haven't read any reviews of the film yet, but (as you well know) any movies about art or artist always interest me.
