Sharon Stone, Vogue Italia, 1992
This timeless image reflects a softer side to the vivacious actress, evoking the feeling of early 20th century fashion photography. Despite being nearly covered in a white sheet, the iconic actress’s beauty and charisma radiates out from the image, creating a tantalising and sophisticated portrait. The delicate yet crisp texture of the sheet creates a wonderful counterpoint to Stone’s warm skin, bathed in white light. Sharon Stone is a widely acclaimed, Academy Award winning actress, known for her roles including Basic Instinct (1992) and Casino (1995), who has appeared in a number of sensational portraits by Michel Comte.
About online exclusives:
This work has been handpicked as part of the Michel Comte Online Exclusive Selection. Previously unavailable for sale and never seen by the general public, these works have been selected by curator Georgina Casparis for the 2021 newness release and the launch of our new online platform. This is the first time Michel Comte’s work has been available in this smaller format and in an edition of 100. The selection is focused on familiar figures from popular culture that provide a neat entry point into Comte’s work and themes. This selection is particularly focused on works from Comte’s major series, so that buyers can build up a collection of connected works that function in any setting. Roger Federer and Sharon Stone have been released as a preview and represent only a fraction of the new Online Exclusive Editions, all of which are due to release in 2021.
