Pen & Inks – Signed & Unsigned

Pen & Inks

Bert Rovere, a robust man, operatic baritone and jazz singer, owned a trendy Los Angeles restaurant and night cub in the 1940s known as the Paris Inn – - waiters sang and customers danced to a full orchestra.  The Paris Inn was a favorite hangout for Hollywood movie stars and starlets.  (Goode was friends with Rovere – Rovere’s IMAGE IS ON PAGE 2)

Goode was a professional musician as well as artist; these passions fused together when he created “The Story Behind the Music” (Liszt and Mendelssohn are two of the works in this series)

After settling in Los Angeles from New York in 1922, Goode played the cello in the orchestra at 20th Century Fox, worked for and was friends with Tom Mix during the silent movie era, playing music for Mr. Mix’s silent films.  Goode sketched pen and inks of the burgeoning and well-known movie stars of the 1920’s, 1930’s and 1940s; many of these sketches were displayed in local print media.
