HOLY MOLY the BFI are doing a Peter Lorre season *falls over* *lies on the floor weeping about not living in London* *gets up to book some tickets* *falls over again*
Peter chillin’ on the beach, c. 1943
You’re right! Thanks for the insight. I even found this illustration on his wikipedia page here.
(hope this helps, anon?)
I am trying to find information on this sharp looking piece of art that appears to be Peter Lorre. It is signed Sic but I have found nothing even close to this style of work or the artist. Anybody out there able to assist with this?
Thanks for the submission!
If I had to guess, I think it’s supposed to be William Powell. The blue eyes, ‘stache, tall-ness and thin-ness seems more like him than a Peter Lorre illustration in my opinion. At least, I think so…
I’ll put it in the tag, but perhaps you could try asking one of the Powell-centric blogs? Maybe this one or this one?
If anyone has any info on the print, we’d love to hear it! It’s a fine illustration.
(Edit: vestisferrea has pointed us in the right direction- it’s a caricature of Max Beerbohm that appeared in Vanity Fair in 1897. The artist is Walter Sickert, according to the Wikimedia page. Thanks!)
