- Barbara Stone, Ruthless People
When actress Bette Midler came to fame in the 1970s, she was known as the 'Divine Miss M' - as was the name of her first album. This 'Divine Trio' series pays homage to her flamboyant stage outfits and Bette's many iconic film roles.
Bette played a Barbara in two of her biggest films from the 1980s - Down and Out in Beverley Hills and one of my favourites, Ruthless People (I confess to being somewhat of Judge Reinhold and Helen Slater fan too).
The colours in this piece really remind me of Barbara Stone. The browns, oranges and blues are like her loud personality, dyed red hair and the high fashion clothes she wears when she is first kidnapped. Before her metamorphosis when - with the help of her kidnappers - a more natural-looking Barbara triumphs over her no-good husband Danny DeVito.
Mounted in a bright white 5cm mount and framed in a black smooth (no grain) contemporary 3.5cm cube frame, with cord attached - ready to hang. Detailed images of the frame can be sent on request.
