Warmly inscribed by de Lartigue to fellow artist and publisher Greg Theakston. This copy also has de Lartigue's address label on the front endpaper with his phone number handwritten on it.
de Lartique is an accomplished realist painter who now creates astonishing photo-realist paintings. He began his career creating these Chris Achilleos-like science fiction and comic book inspired painted illustrations. Many centered around space age femmes. A few nudes including four paintings of Bettie Page. Short introductory text in French.
"Super Heroines is the first artbook on the career of Hubert de Lartigue. His use of airbrush to enhance the realism in his work makes us believe his fantastic visions are reality. Although he appreciates technology, his pictures are not digitally produced. these images are, in fact, 'handmade'."
