Product Description

This set of 5 postcards shows the artists ‘ I Wake Up Screaming’ series which was both drawn and sculpted. The series is based on press images of forgotten star Carole Landis. She was popular in the late 1930’s and had the generic film star looks of that time. After falling in love with the married actor Rex Harrison she was heartbroken when he ended the affair and tragically she committed suicide in 1948. The press photo taken of her deceased body on the bathroom floor is one that has been published over and over again, the photo has almost become more famous than the work she produced as an actress (the title of the series, I Wake Up Screaming, comes from her 1941 film of the same name).
