Audrey Hepburn from 'How to Steal a Million' by Douglas Kirkland
This gorgeous double print of Audrey Hepburn during the shooting of 'How to Steal a Million' by Douglas Kirkland was presented to Audrey's son, Luca Dotti, at the 'Remembering Audrey Hepburn' 2018 gala.
Dotti has generously donated his gift to the causes, stating the following:
Following the Remembering Audrey Hepburn fundraising event last Saturday, October 6, my mother, Audrey Hepburn, would have been so proud of what we all achieved and especially the heartfelt emotions that we all shared.
After my speech Leanne and Marc Silver were so kind to present me with two wonderful Douglas Kirkland photos taken during the shooting of “How to Steel a Million”.
As much as I love this gift and the very fact that these are my wife, Domitilla's favorites, I sincerely feel that this token of affection can be converted into something even more special.
This is why we have agreed to donate them so they can contribute to the two charities we support.
The winning bid will get a special letter of appreciation signed by me.
With deep appreciation,
Audrey Hepburn was nearly 40 when she met Douglas Kirkland, the young magazine photographer who’d became famous taking pictures of Marilyn Monroe in bed for Life Magazine. In Paris to shoot promotional stills for Hepburn’s 1966 heist movie “How To Steal A Million,” Kirkland wound up leaving with one of his favorite images in a 60-year career.
Take home this truly unique memento today!
