Annie Kevans has enjoyed great success since her final show, being bought by Charles Saatchi and included in Art Review's top 25. Kevans' subtly rendered portraits of young boys in oil on paper or canvas belie an inherent darkness. transitiongallery.co.uk
This painting is part of a series called 'Vamps & Innocents', which depicts film starlets from the silent films era in Hollywood. Actors tended to be put into one of two categories: Vamps or Innocents (the virgin/whore syndrome) and repeatedly played the same part so as not to confuse the audiences who in those days found it very difficult to separate the actors from the roles they played.
