Margaret Keane(born 1927) is an Americanartist. She is an illustrator and painter, and mainly draws women and children in oil or mixed media. Her works are instantly recognizable (although often imitated) from the doe-eyed children that are depicted in the drawings.
Margaret D. H. Keane was born 1927 in Tennessee, and attributes her deep respect for theBibleand inspirations of her artwork to the relationship with her grandmother. She later became one ofJehovah's Witnesses, which she said changed her life for the better.
In the 1960's, Margaret Keane's artwork was sold under the name of her husband,Walter Keane. He locked her in a room and forced her to paint,while taking credit for her work. Conflict over that issue was cited as one of the reasons they divorced. Neither wanting to relinquish rights to the artwork, Walter and Margaret's divorce proceedings went all the way to federal court. At the hearing, Margaret created a painting in front of the judge to prove that she was the artist. Walter declined to paint before the court, citing a sore shoulder. In 1986, the courts sided with her, enabling her to paint under her own name.
Her works while living in her husband's shadow tended to depict sad children in a dark setting, but after divorcing, moving toHawaii, and becoming one of Jehovah's Witnesses, her paintings took on a happier, brighter style. Her website now advertises her work as having "tears of joy" or "tears of happiness".
Keane is a fixture in popular culture. Some of her well-known fans over the years have included actressesJoan CrawfordandNatalie Wood, whom she painted portraits of; filmmakerTim Burton, who commissioned Keane to paintLisa Marie; and animatorCraig McCracken, whose charactersThe Powerpuff Girlsare based on Keane's 'waifs'; additionally the Girls' schoolteacher is named "Ms. Keane".
Currently Margaret makes her home inNapa County, California. She will be portrayed byReese Witherspoonin the upcoming filmBig Eyes.
