Moths To A Flame.

(Joan Crawford)


oil on board 60 x 68cms



Based on a black and white studio still from the film Humoresque 1946. The first time we are introduced to Joan Crawford's character she has men clustering around her, lighting her cigarette. I changed the original drawing room fireplace background to give a more dramatic and epic feeling to the painting. The original dress would not have been red ....but it works well here against the formal black and white dinner jackets of the men.
