All prints are limited edition. Available in multiple sizes. High-end framing on request. All prints are done and signed by the artist. The collector receives an additional certificate of authenticity from the gallery. Romy Schneider is not only famous for playing the role of Austria's sweetheart Empress Sissi, she turned into a beloved fan favorite herself. This elegant black and white Portrait Douglas Kirkland shot in 1962 depictsthe actress with the aristocratic chic she is so well known for. Her Smirk at the camera adds that little bit of sass the world has come to love about Romy Schneider. Ever since the young Kirkland eternalized Marilyn Monroe, white sheets, and nothing else, the star photographer has been catapulted into stardom. Dubbed ‘Hollywood’s favorite photographer,’ the late Kirkland has shot over 100 movie sets, from ‘Titanic’ to ‘The Sound of Music.’ While his photographs of icons, from Brigitte Bardot to Andy Warhol and Angelina Jolie, are of the same soft and intimate energy as his early Marilyn shoot, these testaments to the world of motion pictures border on the magical. Tender or larger than life – Kirkland had mastered every tonality.
