Niki de Saint Phalle by Lothar Wolleh (1971)

The photograph entitled “Niki de Saint Phalle” was captured by artist Lothar Wolleh in Milan, 1971. It features a woman presumed to be Niki de Saint Phalle, centered and slightly off-focus, with a blurred background that seems to contain artwork or sculptures. The woman is dressed elegantly in a black outfit with a white ruffle at her neck, and she wears a prominent cross necklace. She holds what appears to be a book or a clutch in her right hand, with a ring visible on her finger. Her expression is poised and her gaze does not directly meet the camera, giving an introspective ambiance. The art in the background has an expressive and slightly chaotic quality, with figures that could be part of her known works if she is indeed the artist. There is a discernible contrast between her composed demeanor and the energetic artwork behind her, which adds to the photograph’s dynamic. The image itself bears the hallmarks of vintage black and white photography, emphasizing textures and light.
