Det ikoniske nøgenbillede af Yves Saint Laurent

Det ikoniske billede af en ung og nøgen Yves Saint Laurent bliver sat til auktion i Paris d. 30. juni.

I 1997 sagde Yves Saint Laurents business partner, Pierre Bergé, om billedet: “It was just provocation on the part of Yves Saint Laurent. The picture didn’t specifically target the gay population, even though it resonated strongly among them. In any case the photo was hardly published at the time. Just barely in the French press. It was only much later on that it became an almost mythical icon.”

Prisen forventes at være fra 15.000 til 112.500 kr.
