One out of the series ‘sans titre’ after the moviestar ‘Gene Tierney’ in the roundism style.
In my ever quest for finding styles and new ways of rendering I found myself challenged by this picture of Ingrid Bergman, famous Swedish-American moviestar and celebrity of the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and part of the 1970s.
This one is special. Sarah Rose, a pastellist and dear colleague from the U.S. and living in Utah, once took this picture on horseback.
The original oil painting on which I based a much larger version. I was fantasizing what would have happened in the days before the assassination of president John F. Kennedy at the very spot (Dealy Plaza).
A commissionary piece for someone you wanted a bigger version of the one I already painted.
