Other Elvis Art, part 1: Betty Harper

I “discovered” Betty a long time ago, long before there was internet, in 1979 when I found a copy of her book “Newly discovered drawings of Elvis Presley” at the American Book Centre in Amsterdam.

Until today the book has still a prominent spot on my bookshelf with art books between Hopper and Wyeth 🙂
Back in the eighties Betty was a real inspiration, I loved all of her Elvis drawings.
Her “Jazz and Blues” and “Country and Western” drawings are also amazing. And she is also a accomplished photographer.
Betty is the Official Artist for Muhammad Ali Enterprises and the Official Artist for Elvis Presley Enterprises!
