This large framed portrait of the crime fiction writer Jim Thompson has been signed by the contemporary portrait artist Doyle Chappell.
Jim Thompson was a novelist and screenwriter known for his hardboiled crime fiction that eventually caught the eye of a young Stan Kubrick back in the late ‘50s. They collaborated on several films throughout their careers, and though some of their works never came to fruition, Thompson was a significant partner with writing the film adaptation for Kubrick’s first studio film “The Killing”, as wells as the 1957 American anti-war film “Paths of Glory”.
Writing over thirty novels throughout his career, he received little acclaim for his writing, but his posthumous success has continued to grow his literary stature and to this day, his novels are continuing to be adapted for the screen.
A graduate from the University of Texas, Doyle Chappell’s sensitive impressions reflect the intangible qualities that motivate and define each of his subjects. A great majority of his work seems to reflect a kind of inner spirit that expresses much more than the what appears on the surface. Although he’s painted numerous oil portraits over the years, he presently works mostly in acrylic on canvas and is still painting in Chicago, IL.
