Lot description
Of his most iconic image Terry O'Neill said, "During rehearsals for ‘The Legend of Frenchie King’, I noticed that when the wind gusted there was the potential for a great picture. When the time came, I only had one frame left – one shot at it. But suddenly the wind swept her hair across her face, and it was a knock-out." Brigitte Bardot, Spain, hangs permanently in the National Portrait Gallery.
