The Big-Eyed Children

I remember the paintings of the children with the huge sad eyes that were ubiquitous in the 1960s. Walter Keane was feted for his sentimental portraits that sold by the million. But in fact, his wife Margaret was the artist, working in virtual slavery to maintain his success. She tells her story, now the subject of a Tim Burton biopic. It's fascinating.
