WICKED QUEEN: MARLENE DIETRICH in THE DEVIL IS A WOMAN (1935) My original color artwork is copyrighted by me, the artist.


















My favorite film is THE DEVIL IS A WOMAN starring MARLENE DIETRICH. For my original artwork of THE WICKED QUEEN from Disney's SNOW WHITE. I used Marlene Dietrich's face with her famous arched eyebrows as reference. A famous line from the film is "You have ice where other's have a heart'. The Devil is a Woman, was Dietrich's favorite film. My artwork shown here is a portion of a larger painting of Miss Dietrich looking in the mirror and seeing the Wicked Queen stare back at her. It is gouache hand painted on illustration board.
