Anne of Green Gables. I've never read it, but I know that the actress Dawn Paris played the eponymous role in the 1930s film and kept the name Anne Shirley for the rest of her career.

This was painted by a person who was in a well-known film with the subject.

"was" implies he's dead and I only know one dead actor who was also pretty well known as a painter so I'll try Anthony Quinn.

It is, looks like a self portrait, but I could be wrong.

“You call yourself a free spirit, a 'wild thing,' and you're terrified somebody's gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you're already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it's not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It's wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself.”

From which 1958 novella?
