BRIGITTE BARDOT CIGAR - COLORIZED - POSTHUMOUS ESTATE SIGNED
Bardot retired from the entertainment industry in 1973. During her career in show business, she starred in 47 films, performed in several musical shows and recorded over 60 songs.
Terry O'Neill's publisher is proud to announce the release of Terry O’Neill’s classic Brigitte Bardot, 1971, for the first time as a colourised edition.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of this iconic image, one of Terry O’Neill’s bestselling fine-art prints. Taken on the set of the film The Legend of Frenchie King (Les Pétroleuses), O’Neill would often speak about how he managed to capture the moment on film. “I noticed that when the wind gusted there was the potential for a great picture. When the time came, I only had a few frames left – my last shots. But suddenly the wind swept her hair across her face, and I knew it was a knock-out.”
Authorized by the Estate, this new edition brings a whole new life to this classic work. Artist Clayton Hickman, known for his work on images of The Beatles and Dr. Who, meticulously mimicked the colours by using source materials directly from the O’Neill archive as well as footage from the film.
Edition of only 50 prints. Measures approx. 25" x 30 5/8" Framed.
