Karen Elson,Vogue Italia, 1996

Decadently posed against an antique chaise, this is a portrait equal to the sumptuous paintings of the 1920s, by figures such as Matisse and Kees van Dongen. Extraordinarily composed, Comte creates his painterly palette in striking shades of red, green and blue, offsetting the coolness of his model’s skin. Model turned singer Karen Elson gaze is at once dream-like and seductive, creating an unforgettable image.
