Two page spread from my journal, depicting the titular character of the Palme d’Or-winning Mexican film María Candelaria, directed by Emilio Fernández.
Frida Kahlo, Mexican painter (1907-1954) 4×6 postcard, ink and watercolor
Julio Cortázar, Argentinian novelist (1914-1984) 4 x6 postcard, ballpoint
Pablo Neruda, Chilean poet (1904-1973) 4 x 6 postcard, ink and watercolor
Ravi Shankar (1920-2012) [14 x 17, charcoal]
I drew and painted these as offerings to leave behind at the graves of Julio Cortázar, Carlos Fuentes, and César Vallejo, all of which are located in Montparnasse Cemetery in Paris. I don’t know what happened to these 4 x 6 cards. It rained for a few days after I left them there. I assume they were wrecked and eventually trashed by some groundskeeper.
Billie Holiday (1915-1959)
Max Roach (1924-2007)
Gerry Mulligan (1927-1996)
