On Valentine's Day 1953\, LA native Don Bachardy (age 18) and internatio nally recognized British author Christopher Isherwood (age 48) began a rela tionship that would last thirty-three years\, until Isherwood's death in 19 86. A film about their life together\, \;Chris &\; Don: A Love S tory\, was released in 2008. Their home in Santa Monica Canyon was a s alon for the local artworld and a mecca for artists\, writers and composers visiting from abroad. Early on\, Bachardy developed exceptional drawing sk ills and for the past 50+ years he has made portraits from life (never from photographs) becoming one of the most recognized portrait artists of our t ime. Previous exhibitions at Craig Krull Gallery have focused on his&nb sp\;Self-Portraits \;(Jan/Feb 2010) and his \;Portraits of L.A. Artists \;(Sept/Oct 2011). The exhibition opening in Sept 20 13\, entitled \;Literary Figures\, \;will feature 18 portr aits of authors such as Aldous Huxley\, William Burroughs\, Anaï\;s Nin \, James Baldwin\, Ray Bradbury\, and Annie Proulx. Each of these portraits was signed by the subject\, and in fact\, the Allen Ginsberg portrait incl udes a hand-written poem that Ginsberg composed while looking out the windo w at the Pacific Ocean during the sitting.

Comple menting the literary theme of this exhibition\, the gallery's foyer will fe ature works from Danae Falliers' series\, \;Library. These col or photographs of books on shelves are subtly manipulated so that the books \, though still identifiable as books\, become slightly blurred\, linear\, geometric abstractions.  \;  \;
