Below is some info on Margaret Keane and her ex husband Walter Keane.... In case you are not aware of her story.

Margaret D. H. Keane (September 15, 1927 – June 26, 2022) is an American painter best known for her surrealistic portraits featuring subjects with preternaturally large eyes. These oil paintings often feature women or animals. Despite the rather bizarre nature of her subjects, Keane has experienced intense critical acclaim and commercial success. This was not without its own challenges, her work was stolen by her then-husband Walter Keane, which led to a protracted legal battle. She eventually won the rights to her own paintings in 1986. Her images are often featured on plates, cups, and other inexpensive reproductions. Her unique story and art led to her becoming the subject of Tim Burton’s 2014 biopic, Big Eyes.

Today the Keane gallery in San Francisco holds the largest collection of Margaret Keane’s art in the world. While her work is extremely divisive with critics, she has enjoyed a good amount of success apart from the gallery world. Her work has been featured in Steven Spielberg and Woody Allen movies, on album covers, and even the cartoon series, The Powerpuff Girls. Keane’s influence on modern culture is undeniable, ultimately culminating in the 2014 biopic that covers her career and legal troubles.

Walter Stanley Keane (October 7, 1915 – December 27, 2000) was an American plagiarist who became famous in the 1960s as the claimed painter of a series of widely reproduced paintings depicting vulnerable subjects with enormous eyes. The paintings are now accepted as having been painted by his wife Margaret Keane. When she declared her side of the story, Walter Keane retaliated with a USA Today article that again claimed he had done the work. In 1986, Margaret Keane sued Walter and USA Today. In the subsequent slander suit, the judge demanded that the litigants paint a painting in the courtroom, but Walter declined, citing a sore shoulder. Margaret then produced a painting for the jurors in 53 minutes. The jury awarded her damages of $4 million.
