Truman Capote Inspired This Painting

”On The Eve Of Execution” 🎨 by Dan Victor • 18 x 24″ Acrylic on Paper.

This piece was done very quickly, in an hour, immediately after watching the movie “Capote” I was moved by the way art can pervert one’s ethics, just in order to get to a truth. The truth that Truman found out when he wrote “In Cold Blood” was that he exploited the killer of the quadruple murder. Only on the night of execution did Capote realize what he had done, in the name of writing one of the most popular true crime novels, only second to “Helter Skelter”.

I was moved by Philip Seymour Hoffman’s portrayal of the realization Capote had the night Hickock and Smith were put to death. Of the unlikely relationship that seemed to me to have taken a piece of the artist when they were executed.
