Carole Lombard was a favorite of artists during her lifetime, as this mid-1930s image of her posing for a portrait by Azadia Newman, wife of director Rouben Mamoulian, makes clear. Several fan magazines used her for cover portraits painted by Marland Stone and other notables of the era.
That tradition has continued to this day, as Lombard has joined Marilyn Monroe and other Hollywood icons as becoming an inspiration for Pop Art. Take a look at this:
This is an original painting on canvas from pop artist Jamie Roxx, made in January at his studio in Deerfield, Fla. The specifics:
* It is an oil & acrylic blend on canvas.
* It measures 16" x 20" x 3/4"
* It is signed and comes with an official, signed Certificate of Authenticity.
* The painting is gallery wrapped, meaning it continues over onto the sides of the canvas, so expensive framework is not needed.
* The painting is professionally back-finished with black artist paper and wired making it ready to hang straight out the box.
* Painting will ship from South Florida covered in artist paper & plastic via priority mail, the next day after payment is received.
