Bonnie Balanced for Clyde

by Rosie Burns Artist


This is a mono-type print - they are made as an edition of 5 prints using an intaglio process where the ink is rubbed into and off the mount board plate, so a true identical edition is not possible. They are very small editions and the gold is added as a glaze to the print.
A glamorised thief, a gun wielding beauty, possibly the most known femme fatal, with other qualities..
During her school days, Bonnie excelled at creative writing and penning verses. While she was imprisoned in 1932 after a failed hardware store burglary, she penned a collection of 10 odes that she entitled “Poetry from Life’s Other Side,” which included “The Story of Suicide Sal,” a poem about an innocent country girl lured by her boyfriend into a life a crime. Two weeks before her death, Bonnie gave a prescient poem to her mother entitled “The Trail’s End” that finished with the verse:
Some day they’ll go down together;
And they’ll bury them side by side,
To a few it’ll be grief—
To the law a relief—
But it’s death for Bonnie and Clyde.
