Margaret Keane’s zodiac sign is Virgo. According to astrologers, Virgos are always paying attention to the smallest details and their deep sense of humanity makes them one of the most careful signs of the zodiac. Their methodical approach to life ensures that nothing is left to chance, and although they are often tender, their heart might be closed for the outer world. This is a sign often misunderstood, not because they lack the ability to express, but because they won’t accept their feelings as valid, true, or even relevant when opposed to reason. The symbolism behind the name speaks well of their nature, born with a feeling they are experiencing everything for the first time.
Margaret Keane was born in the Year of the Rabbit. Those born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Rabbit enjoy being surrounded by family and friends. They’re popular, compassionate, sincere, and they like to avoid conflict and are sometimes seen as pushovers. Rabbits enjoy home and entertaining at home. Compatible with Goat or Pig.
Famous for her oil paintings of doe-eyed characters, Keane was one of the most popular and commercially successful artists of the 1960s. Her paintings, which include "The First Grail," "Vanity," and "Two Siamese," typically feature images of children, animals, and women.
When she was just ten years old, she created her first painting-- an image of two young girls -- and presented it to her grandmother as a gift. She later trained at both the Watkins Art Institute (in Nashville, Tennessee) and the Traphagen School of Design (in New York, New York).
She painted portraits of Actress Natalie Wood, Comedian Jerry Lewis, and presidential son John F. Kennedy Jr., among other celebrities.
In the 1960s, she sued her ex-husband, Walter Keane, for having taken credit for her paintings for several years. Keane was her second husband; she was previously married to Frank Richard Ulbrich (with whom she has a daughter), and in her later life, she married Sports Journalist Dan McGuire.
She is portrayed by Actress Amy Adams in the 2014 Tim Burton-directed biopic Big Eyes. She also makes a brief appearance in the film.
