Artist Statement

Untitled (Champagne & Cigarette) is a total M O O D. Shot in 1936 for Vogue and De Bijenkorf department stores, the photo is a master class in atmosphere. A woman’s hand festooned in gemmed finery rests delicately on a single glass of champagne while the other lightly clutches a lit cigarette. The stage is set upon a pristinely pressed tablecloth bathed in bright, theatrical lighting, as if we’ve caught madame mid-digestif following a decadent meal. Yet, using soft blurring and pointed focus, van de Poll ensures the jewels are the true stars of the show.

Why We Love It

Everyone loves a good candy deal, but after two years in sweatpants who doesn’t need a little extra glitz and glam? Dust off those diamonds with the ultimate Galentine’s day vibes in our newest Vintage Edition, Untitled (Champagne & Cigarette) by Willem van de Poll.
