    Post Lot Text

    This image has acquired its own high visibility as one of the signature subjects associated with the name of Peter Lindbergh, while paying homage to two other iconic photographs -- Erwin Blumenfeld's vertiginous study of Lisa Fonssagrives and Marc Riboud's charming picture of a Chaplinesque painter.
