Fine limited-edition art print of my painting 'Hedy in Red'. Features vibrant reds and with green accents, captured in archival ink. The colours are guaranteed to stay true for a lifetime. Limited-edition of just 125.

'Hedy in Red' is my new portrait of 1940s actress Hedy Lamarr. She's one of a series of portraits called 'How to be Beautiful'. These paintings explore our ideals of female beauty... and how they shape how we see ourselves. Hedy was billed as ‘The Most Beautiful Women in Films’. She also co-developed an important radio technology, now used in Wi-Fi. But she said of her first marriage, ”I was like a doll... ...some object of art which had to be guarded—and imprisoned—having no mind, no life of its own”. I've painted Hedy with Japanese quince, an early Spring blossom with brilliantly sharp thorns. 

Here you can see 'Hedy in Red' in our two edition sizes, 30 x 40 cm and 50 x 70cm (photographed). Both are standard sizes for frames including those in Ikea's 'Ribba' collection.
