$5000.00 USD

Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.

Dorothy Parker has always been a favorite of mine. I enjoy her wild wit and brilliant snark. She was a poet, a critic for The New Yorker and co-founder of the Algonquin Round Table, where she and her clever peers would have dinner, drink heavily and exchange jabs. Oh, how I’ve longed to sit at that table! Parker also co-wrote the 1937 film A Star is Born, and she left all of her money to the Martin Luther King Jr. estate. Parker’s ashes are stored at the NAACP headquarters in Baltimore.  

"The first thing I do in the morning is brush my teeth and sharpen my tongue."

The full-sized mannequin stands at 5'8". It stands on a metal stand. 
Plastic, paper, acrylic paint, glaze, vintage books. Collaged with relevant material to Dorothy Parker and the time period. 
Original Artwork as seen in Pardon Me While I Blaze Some Trails Art Exhibit about Trailblazing Women.
