Alfred Hitchock by Robert Sacchetto
When Oliver Cromwell's portrait was painted he made his famous quote; " Paint me warts and all".
I can't help but wonder, if Alfred Hitchcock made the same comment.
But, all that aside this picture has an intriguing story to tell. Artist Robert Sacchetto sent this picture to 'The Portrait' a few hours after being interviewed by CBC's Rita Celli. Robert revealled that he painted it for Rue Morgue's tribute to Alfred Hitchcock issue.
