Warm Nights, Deathless Days: The Life of Georgette Chen is Eisner-nominated comic artist Sonny Liew’s response to the legacy of one of Singapore’s most prominent pioneer artists Georgette Chen (1906 – 1993). The result is a moving portrait of Chen’s life, thoughts, and dreams, a charming chronicle of her days as a precocious young painter to her winning of Singapore’s prestigious Cultural Medallion in 1982. Richly illustrated in a soft, milky palette, the comic captures the quiet space of art and friendship that Chen sheltered amid a turbulent backdrop of political turmoil and personal hardship. This book is the third title in the National Gallery’s Dreaming Art Series, presenting original illustrated stories by contemporary practitioners in the arts in response to key works in the National Collection.
