DEAN MARTIN 2009 fine art print / edition of 35 / $195.00 each
Debonair, seductive crooner; laconic actor; Vegas/Hollywood Rat Pack immortal, this poster boy for the High Life emerged from a humble boyhood in Steubenville, Ohio (b. Dino Paul Crocetti, June 7, 1917; d. Dec. 25, 1995, Beverly Hills). He paid dues working in steel mills and earned pocket change as a gambler and a prize fighter, before taking to the stage as a likelier route to fame, fortune, and keeping his facial features attached. (After leaving the ring, his nose was surgically rearranged, a job financed by comedian Lou Costello.) Martin garnered a following in nightclubs offering a smooth persona influenced by Bing Crosby, Perry Como, and boyhood idols the Mills Brothers.

In the late 1940s, he achieved stardom by teaming with a brash, long-jawed comic named Jerry Lewis, with whom he conquered casinos, radio, films, and TV. Branching out, Dino launched a recording career, with a string of hits including "That's Amore" and "Volare." A youngster named Elvis idolized Martin and copied much of his stylistic flair.
