The Sailor's Return -Clara Bow
61 x 81cms
oil on board
A reworking of a black and white studio still.
The original Clara Bow movie was called "True To The Navy".
Clara Bow was the original "it" girl and the first sex symbol to come from the silver screen.
Fine art painters in the 1920s - 50s were often employed to make colour reworkings of stills for billboard posters. If only that job was still available!
