James Dean – ‘Giant’ – 1.3 metres width x 1.6 metres height x 9 cm depth. Imported Italian ‘Maimeri’ acrylic paint on 340 gsm canvas.

My second painting of James Dean. The image is taken from the brilliant 1956  film ‘Giant’ in which he played a brooding cowboy.  This was the last role in Dean’s all-too-brief career, he was dead when the film was released, and his presence ran away with the film. He performs his role in the overwrought method manner of the era, and the rest of the cast seems to be split between awe of his talent and disgust over his indulgence.
