Graham Greene(1904-1991), Novelist
Sitter in 51 portraits
Greene began his career as a journalist for The Times. He converted to Roman Catholicism in 1926, the paradoxes of life and faith and the motives for committing to a cause or ideology, became the subject of his later writing. He achieved critical acclaim for works exploring profound moral dilemmas such as Brighton Rock, The Power and the Glory, The Heart of the Matter and The End of the Affair. During the Second World War, he worked as an intelligence officer, inspiring Our Man in Havana (1958) and his screenplay The Third Man (1949). In the 1960s he moved to Antibes, where he was awarded the chevalier of the Légion d'honneur by the French government in 1969.
