Inez Storer’s true life story would be hard to believe if it was fiction. The daughter of a pilot who became a Hollywood art director and an actress/dancer mother who spent a lifetime hiding the fact that she was Jewish, she spent her early life on movie sets, where grand illusions were an every day stock in trade. Her paintings are like storyboards where Scheherazade might be having lunch with Superman and musicians and costumed extras might be seen rushing to get to the set on time.  Later in life, Storer would marry Andrew Romanoff, the grandnephew of the Czar Nicholas II, the last emperor of Russia, their combined true life histories providing much of the rich material that peppers her imaginative paintings.
