Description
This pigment print was made in 2011. It is signed, titled, and dated in pencil by the artist on verso; artist's wet stamp also on verso.
Hollywood Cemetery (5970-6000 W. Santa Monica Boulevard) was founded in 1899. In 1998, the cemetery changed hands and the name was changed to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1999.; The extensive portfolio of photographic artist Carol Westwood (1942-2011), a native New Yorker who lived in Los Angeles for many years, includes a diverse array of subjects: animals, nudes, American and European cities, and portraits. Additionally, she worked on special and still photography for numerous motion picture and television productions in Hollywood; the archive of her entertainment and celebrity images was distributed internationally by Gamma, Liaison International, Stone Images, and Getty images from 1988-2003.
The raised tombs of Constance Adams DeMille (left) and Cecil Blount DeMille, located in the Garden of Legends at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The remains of other DeMille family members surround those of Constance and Cecil. William Churchill DeMille, the son of Cecil and Constance, was cremated and his ashes placed in the front urn (lower center); the grave of William's wife, Clara, is directly in front of the "DeMille" name sign. Photograph dated January, 1996.
