Bah! I'm in France for a month & can't access iplayer! Great drawing of Welles-he's not easy to capture. I've been fascinated by the man & his career for years. Have you read Simon Callow's books on Welles?I saw'Me & Orson Welles' recently-the actor portraying Welles does well-he certainly has the voice.Merry Xmas to you & the family Max.
Ah, pity, he draws live for the camera. With a feather! He may be hard to draw but he does very effective stylized self-portaits.I'm not surprised, he was bound to be a good sketcher.I haven't read Simon Callow books on him, I didn't know about them but just checked and they do look interesting, maybe.All the bestest Xmas Wishes to you too Matt.
Yes, Welles was a talented artist-he designed most of the sets of his early stage work. Have you seen the 'Macbeth' film Welles made? Brilliant set.I see that Callow himself is presenting a new documentary on Welles' travels around Europe-it may be online when i get back.
True! I had forgot about that, yes I did see Macbeth. Must watch it again asap. Pity it's not part of the current Welles' season.I look forward to the Callow documentary, great!
Wasn't it WONDERFUL?!!...
Great series indeed, and good documentaries.I still need to watch Macbeth though.
