Additional Details

From Henry Feldstein, Forest Hills, New York; to a Private Collector, in 2002.

This iconic image was made on assignment for LIFE Magazine. Doisneau apparently hid behind an antique chair at a Parisian art gallery. He arranged his Rolliflex at an angle capturing furtive male admirers gazing at the painted female nude figure.
