Orson Welles

Born in Kenosha, Wisconsin in 1915, George Orson Welles is one of the most remarkable figures in the history of the cinema. His feature films include Citizen Kane (1941), The Magnificent Ambersons (1942), The Stranger (1946),  and The Lady from Shanghai (1947), among many, many more.

 

What many may not know is, that while Welles was growing up, he was a talented painter. He spent a summer at the Art Institute of Chicago, and continued to paint and sketch throughout his career, creating costume and set designs, caricatures, oil paintings and illustrations.

 

Orson Welles gained international fame as director and narrator of a 1938 radio adaptation of "The War of the Worlds." His first film was "Citizen Kane," which he directed, produced and starred in; it's considered among the greatest American films.
