Eva Sarandon / Amurri

About this artwork

This photograph is of Eva, the daughter of American actress Susan Sarandon. Although sombrely dressed in black, clutching her toy rabbit, a delicate lace collar frames her face and she wears a soft smile, her eyes glistening. Although it was taken at a time when Robert Mapplethorpe was desperately ill from AIDS and had only a few months to live, it is an image of innocence and of bright hope for the future.
