Shaded Stars, The Home For Retired Showgirls. 20″x24″, oil on canvas. Sold
The other day as I was printing out a ‘Tallulah Shaw Rehearses Before Her Final Show. 1959‘ print, I found myself a little sad. What happens to the Tallulahs of the world after they retire from showbiz? Do they end up eating soup and crackers in a dimly lit studio apartment somewhere south of horrible? Or, do they go someplace very special? In Janetland, it has to be special. So here are a few retirees enjoying their semi-retirement….they don’t let go of those costumes too easily.
You may notice that I used the term ‘showgirls’ loosely as there is at least one or two circus ladies in attendance.
