Vogue: Like a Painting

In Vogue: Like a Painting, Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza's superb new collection of painterly fashion images, essayist Lucy Davies quotes photographer Paolo Roversi, whose "Stella, Paris" (1999) is reproduced here. ‘Photography is always a portrait, and it is always autobiographical. I grew up in Italy, where painting was always very close — in museums, churches, my education. All those artist traditions were completely in my eyes when I was a child.’" She continues, "Roversi’s photographs draw exquisitely on Old Master portraits, a dark or twilit background, from which the marble-like pallor of his models’ skin can slowly emerge, the pastel colors of the clothes, lips or eyelids or accessories seem to glow as if they had been blended in oil and soaked with varnish for hundreds of years."
