ok but i didn’t know the true story behind this until just now
GUYS THIS LADY’S HUSBAND TOOK CREDIT FOR HER ARTWORK AND SHE STRAIGHT UP TOOK HIM TO COURT OVER IT
THEY HAD A FUCKING PAINT-OFF IN THE GODDAMN COURT ROOM WHICH SHE WON BECAUSE HE MADE EXCUSES FOR WHY HE COULDN’T DO IT
THE POWERPUFF GIRLS ARE INSPIRED BY THIS WOMAN’S ARTWORK
sorry i’m just really REALLY fascinated by this story
wait this movie looks amazing tho
I kind of wanna see this movie
Wait, Tim Burton did a movie without Johnny Depp in it? What the hell??
Oh shit, they’re doing a Margaret Keane movie? YES. I unironically love her work; it’s like the spiritual ancestor of those Serendipity books with the soft doe-eyed critters in them. Her life story is pretty sad as well, and some of her paintings were meant to help her deal with her issues.
"This is going to sound so hokey, but I feel like any problem in the world in my opinion, is probably rooted in a lack of compassion. You can disagree; we don’t have to think the same, but just a sense of compassion for other people. It’s the gas, the fuel behind conflict resolve, and a lot of times when I see it, my personal opinion in politics, foreign affairs, is just this general lack of compassion for other people’s struggles, other people’s opinions. So, if I could somehow infuse that, that would be the power." - Chris Evans on a superpower and how he would use it
