AUDREY HEPBURN COLLAGE

AUDREY HEPBURN COLLAGE

Anti-Clockwise from lower right centre : Romancing William Holden & Humphrey Bogart (along with close up of her stunning eyes) from Sabrina (1954); With Jeremy Brett (playing brother to Hepburn) in the beautiful Hollywood adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s acclaimed novel, the epic War and Peace (1956); Another close-up of her sharpest of features, a blow-up of her eyes, from Ariane – Love in the Afternoon (1957); Saving Anthony Perkins with the kiss of life in Green Mansions (1959); and finally singing along with Jeremy Brett again (this time playing young Freddy, who has a crush on Hepburn’s Eliza) in My Fair Lady (1964). 

I’ve paid many a tributes to Audrey Hepburn through my artworks and many a writings, especially on IMDB.

Another actress whose death anniversary falls today, happens to be that of Parveen Babi, Bollywood star of the 70’s & early 80’s.

Parveen Babi (1949-2005), a star who suffered from Schizophrenia almost all her life. A tragic loss. I made this collage around the time she passed away.
