Cheryl Crane

Photograph by the Los Angeles Times

Cheryl Crane in a heavily retouched photograph published April 6, 1958, while she was being held in the stabbing death of Johnny Stompanato. This is one of the most heavily repainted photographs I have ever come across.

    That’s amazing. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one so much like a painting.
