Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (French: [kɔ.lɛt]; 28 January 1873 – 3 August 1954), known simply as Colette, was a French author and woman of letters. She was also a mime, actress, and journalist. Colette is best known in the English-speaking world for her 1944 novella Gigi, which was the basis for the 1958 film and the 1973 stage production of the same name. Her short story collection The Tendrils of the Vine is also famous in France.
I had a solo show of 20 drawings of authors, all done in pencil and Conte. The show was a success! It was tons of fun to draw them. Since then I have also done Jimi Hendrix, Louis Armstrong, David Bowie, Johnny Cash, Lou Reed, Syd Barrett, Dimebag Darrell, and Gary Numan. I have prints of most of them available.
This is a signed 8" x 10" signed print made from a pencil and Conte drawing on toned tan paper. The print is on archival matte photo paper.
The original is not for sale.
