IN MEMORIAM : PRINCE (1958-2016)

Prince and Diana Spencer as depicted by Guy Peellaert in Secret Places, from the Twentieth Century Dreams series (1995-1999)

Diana, Princess of Wales, was once asked by a reporter to name her favorite singer, and she replied "Prince." 

That statement was the starting point for an infamous image from the Twentieth Century Dreams series, Guy Peellaert's first foray into digital art in the mid-1990s. In a lurid photomontage titled Secret Places, Peellaert and collaborating partner Nik Cohn imagined a stealthy rendez-vous between the rock star and the future Princess in a seedy motel.

"She always was an impetuous girl", read Cohn's caption.
