About this Item: Johnson Meyers Publishers, 1962. PAPERBACK. Condition: Good. First Edition. B0007F7DYY 1962 first edition Johnson Meyers Publishers (San Francisco, California), 7 1/8 x 10 1/4 inches tall stapled paperbound, copiously illustrated in full color with the Keane's artwork, 8 pp. plus 24 pages of color plates. Mild to moderate soiling, rubbing and edgewear to covers. Half-inch abrasion to front cover. A couple of pages with slight creasing. Otherwise, a good to very good copy. ~LLL~ Walter Stanley Keane (1915-2000) was an American plagiarist, who became famous in the 1960s, as the claimed painter of a series of widely reproduced paintings depicting vulnerable waifs with enormous eyes. The paintings were in fact painted by his wife Margaret Keane (b. 1927). When she made this fact public, Walter Keane retaliated with a USA Today article that again claimed he had done the work. In 1986 Margaret Keane sued Walter and USA Today. In the subsequent slander suit, the judge demanded that the litigants paint a painting in the courtroom, but Walter declined, citing a sore shoulder. Margaret then produced a painting for the jurors in 53 minutes. The jury awarded her damages of $4 million. Seller Inventory # LLL-0471-7263

About this Item: [no publisher, San Francisco, 1961. Condition: Near Fine. First edition. 12mo. [12]pp. Stapled illustrated self-wrappers. Illustrated with photographs of the Keane family and of the Keane's painting, as well as various art works. A little age-toning, else near fine. Written in 1959, but from internal evidence, issued in 1961 or early 1962. Pamphlet promoting the art of Walter and Margaret Keane, known for Margaret's big-eyed children paintings, but which Walter claimed the credit for, the pamphlet mentions a bank that will finance the purchase of their paintings, with the paintings used as collateral. Their story was the basis for the Tim Burton-directed film with Amy Adams and Christopher Waltz as the Keanes. They are credited with the relative "mass production" and wide spread distribution of art that paved the way for Warhol multiples and eventually to the likes of Thomas Kinkaid. OCLC locates several presumably similar promotional pamphlets on the Keanes by Nolan, but only six with this pagination (probably incorrectly dated as 1959). Seller Inventory # 399320
