Jane Austen Warholized!

Many say Jane Austen is a pop icon, so I thought it quite fitting that she should get Warholized at Big Huge Labs. For those of you who might not understand the term, it refers to pop artist Andy Warhol who made this repeating block style of portraiture popular in the 1960's. You might remember seeing his interpretation of Dame Elizabeth Taylor which actor Hugh Grant (Edward Ferrars in Sense and Sensibility 1996) sold in 2007 for 23.7 million dolars! Who needs a movie hit when your art is just hanging around making money for you, right?

Warhol died in 1987, but his influence lives on just like Jane Austen. Hugh Grant on the other hand is still with us, but his career may have died with Lyrics and Music in 2007. Meow!

Hugh Grant,
fawned over by women for more many years until he was caught with a prostitue in L.A.

Is he a Darcy or a Whickham?
Was Grant showing his true colours in Bridget Jones?

Only Jane can tell us.......
