Description:
A John Decker painting of Sid Grauman Oil on board, unsigned, framed, c.1930, with a plaque affixed to the bottom of the painting which reads: "Sid Grauman / As Blue Boy / After Gainsborough / By John Decker." Grauman is a seminal figure in the history of Hollywood for many reasons, primarily for having developed two of its most famous theaters, Grauman's Chinese Theatre (where film stars put their hand and footprints in cement) and the Egyptian Theatre, both of which are still standing and continue to attract patrons and tourists. John Decker was a prolific artist who painted traditional portraits as well as renderings of celebrities as historical figures or as the subjects of famous works of art. He painted W.C. Fields as Queen Victoria (a painting which hung prominently at Chasen's for many years), Greta Garbo as Mona Lisa, and Mickey Rooney in the style of Anthony Van Dyke. Overall: 38 x 48 x 3 in.; within frame: 30 x 40 in.
