Edgar Allan Poe, Poet and Author: Print
Edgar Allan Poe (/poʊ/; né Edgar Poe; January 19, 1809 – October 7, 1849) was an American writer, poet, editor, and literary critic who is best known for his poetry and short stories, particularly his tales of mystery and the macabre. He is widely regarded as a central figure of Romanticism in the United States, and of American literature. He was one of the country's earliest practitioners of the short story, and is considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre, as well as a significant contributor to the emerging genre of science fiction. He is the first well-known American writer to earn a living through writing alone, resulting in a financially difficult life and career.
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.
