A nostalgic giclée on paper by contemporary pop artist Stuart McAlpine Miller.
If there’s one hotel that sums up the timeless glamour of London, it’s The Savoy. Its rich history and celebrity guests are immortalised in A Time for Reflection: The Savoy Suite.
This piece captures the legendary American actress Marilyn Monroe. As one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s, the ill-fated model and singer delighted fans with films like The Seven Year Itch and Bus Stop.
Stuart says: “I tried to show her looking vulnerable by using a fresh-faced image of her in an almost uncomfortable pose. The idea was to convey the complexity of her character through the composition of the painting.”
