Sans titre – 25-01-15

Part of the Sans titre series, being Simone Signoret, French actress active in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. It was time that I should give her credit by making a great clairobscur drawing of her, reflecting somehow the epoque of film noir. I found a beautiful picture of her in her younger days and I saw some great diagonals providing me something to hold on whilst experimenting with her portrait in a cubistic way.
