Ann Chernow is known for her portrait-style illustrations that evoke the images of female cinematic figures of the 1930s and 1940s. Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Norma Shearer, and Katharine Hepburn were the subjects of some of her works in the late 1990s. In most of her works, however, Chernow avoids specificity, choosing instead to portray universal situations through figures who are inspired by film but reinterpreted to transcend stereotypes. Chernow has worked extensively in the mediums of lithography, silkscreen, etching, and colored pencil.
