About this artwork

Albert Watson made this photograph of Sir Sean Connery while on the set of Connery’s last feature film The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003). Portrayed as the character of Allan Quatermain, Connery is however best known for his role as James Bond, having appeared as Bond in seven films including Dr. No (1962) and Goldfinger (1964). The misogyny of the Bond character Connery portrayed sometimes extended into the actor’s openly expressed views towards women, bringing condemnation from many. Over the course of his career Connery won numerous awards including two BAFTAs and an Academy Award. With his fee from Diamonds are Forever (1971) Connery established the Scottish International Education Trust. Since then, many organisations and individuals across Scotland have benefited from his philanthropy.
