Simone Signoret by Bruno de Monès

One of the portraits in the exhibition currently being held near the Théatre de l’Odéon (all the details are in our article here). Click through to read the story behind the photo…

Simone Signoret (1921-1985), de son vrai nom Simone Kaminker, actrice française. Paris, 1984.

Commissioned by Marie Claire. From the very start of the shoot, she offered me this smile. Yves Montant was present, near here. “Simone Signoret, with the sweet smile of a Mona Lisa that had grown older and was loving it.”

The Bruno de Monès exhibition continues until 26th June 2010.
