Lady Chatterley's Lover (Penguin Colouring)

This is a recreation in acrylic paint on illustration board of the Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition (2006) of Lady Chatterley's Lover. This is one of two recreations of this cover painted in 2021, the other done in full colour. The illustration board measures 29 x 20 inches. The image area is inches. We asked Chester about the recreation of these images. "It’s fun revisiting old work and getting to reimagine it. I particularly enjoyed seeing what a different sort of colour scheme would have been like for the edition of Lady Chatterley’s Lover that I did for Penguin several years ago. And it might sound like a minor thing, but it made me happy to put a “proper” Penguin logo on one of these. On the printed version, the art director made the logo very small (because the words “deluxe edition” had to be incorporated into the logo’s design).

Brown, Chester
Chester Brown is the destroyer of minds, hearts and history.Minds with his avant-guarde comedy and first long-work, ED THE HAPPY CLOWN, featuring nothing less than a masturbating giant squid, a man's anus as the portal to another dimension, and a talking-penis head with the face of "beloved" ex-president Ronald Regan. Oh yeah - and a sweet clown and dead vampire girl.Hearts with his autobiographical works, THE PLAYBOY and I NEVER LIKED YOU, which absolutely devastate any reader brave enough to tackle their honest and horrifyingly frank portrayals of teenage neuroses and angst, as well as his gentle and melancholic shorts found in the collection, LITTLE MAN AND OTHER STORIES.History with his lucid but extremely personal biography of Metis rebel leader, LOUIS RIEL. Far from revisionist, this is a deeply moving portrayal of a conflicted but historically important figure in Canada's fractured history. Chester Brown does not sell the original artwork from his comics. He does some commisioned works recreating pages or panels from his comics to satisfy collector demand. The items below fit somewhere in-between.
