New portrait of Olivia de Havilland as Melanie is introduced

Olivia by Joe (1)By Sally Tippett Rains
Artist Joseph Yakovetic has completed the portrait: “Olivia de Havilland as Melanie” and it is ready for sale. You just can’t draw a picture of Olivia de Havilland in her character Melanie from Gone With the Wind without obtaining many permissions. There are the GWTW permissions and the personal one from Olivia de Havilland. After much work, the waiting is over…
Here is the information from the artist:

Offical from Ms. de Havilland’s business manager:

Miss de Havilland has given her permission to Mr. Yakovetic to use her image and proceed with his portrait of “Olivia de Havilland as Melanie”  with the understanding that there will be a limited edition of 15 giclee prints on canvas, in addition to 5 artist proofs. Final painting will soon be released.
Miss de Havilland personally selected this image of Melanie for Yakovetic to paint. She also art directed Yakovetic through the final touches of this rare collectible.
This is the ONLY authorized image of Olivia de Havilland in over ten years.
