Original Cover illustration for the novel by Connie Willis, published by Bantam/Spectra (pb) 1995 - Also seen on the edition published by J’ai Lu 1997 (French publishing house part of the Flammarion group). Winner of more Hugo and Nebula Awards than any other science fiction author, Willis here explores a Hollywood of the future, where moviemaking has been computerized and live-action films are a thing of the past. It's a Hollywood where Humphrey Bogart and Marilyn Monroe (see the painting!) are starring together in A Star Is Born! Handpainted in oils on canvas mounted on wood panel, the image dimensions approx 24 x 20" plus comes framed to 24.5” x 20.75” signed and dated 1994 bottom left. Lots of fun images here, totally Ruddell!
