Nude Kate Moss pic goes under hammer

2011-11-11 21:20
Los Angeles - One of Kate Moss' favourite photographs of herself is expected to sell for £18,000 at auction.

The black and white nude portrait of the supermodel, taken by photographer Albert Watson at the end of a day's shoot in 1993, will go on sale at Bonhams auction house in London next week.

The company said: "Watson created probably two of the most iconic images of Moss on a shoot for German Vogue, and today they remain among his most popular pictures.

"At the end of a day shooting on a roof-top in Marrakech, Watson suggested he create nude photographs of Moss and she happily obliged."

Watson described this picture, part of a series, as "among the best pictures ever taken of her," adding the catwalk queen had said so herself recently.

Other auction pieces

Other photographs of Kate will go under the hammer including one taken by the late Corinne Day, who is widely credited with launching the London star's modelling career.

A David LaChapelle portrait of Courtney Love and Andre de Dienes picture of Marilyn Monroe, taken in a Bel Air Hotel in the 1940s will also be sold along with an Albert Watson photograph of Christy Turlington taken in 1990 and Frank Sinatra with his bodyguards photographed by Terry O'Neill.

Bonhams Photographs Sale will take place on 17 November.
