A lavish hardback containing Orson Welles' Portfolio, much of which has never been seen before. Orson Welles, famous as an accomplished actor, writer, producer and visionary director, had originally aspired to become a musician or artist. Having studied at the Art Institute of Chicago for one summer, he continued to draw and paint throughout his life. The majority of his artwork, including costume and set designs and caricatures, has been unavailable to the public. Until now.
Some really great paintings and sketches are included in this book, the most captivating one is the Christmas Cards that he made for his wide and daughter. Such a personal look into Welles’ art and life. - Brooke, The Book Grocer
