Description

The Keanes' teary, big-eyed orphans and many trashy knockoffs epitomised American kitsch art for decades. But decades of lawsuits and countersuits revealed the reality that Keane was more con man than artist, and that he forced his wife Margaret to sign his name to her work. Citizen Keane is a book-length expansion of Adam Parfrey's original 1992 Juxtapoz article, providing fascinating details, photographs, colour reproductions and appendices with legal documents and pseudonymous essays by Tom Wolfe inflating big eye art to those painted by the great masters.
