After Van Dongen, United Kingdom, November 1959

Adele Collins wearing an Otto Lucas toque. This image was inspired by a 1919 painting entitled 'The Corn Poppy' by the Dutch artist, Kees Van Dongen. A different frame appeared in the original 1959 British Vogue spread (p.105) but this version was selected by Parkinson to appear on the cover of the 1981 catalogue accompanying his solo exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, London.
