Comment: This iconic image is this internationally acclaimed photographer's most recognisable work. It is regarded by many as the best Oscar picture ever taken.

Terry O'Neill captures Faye Dunaway in the early morning of 29 March 1977 after she won the Oscar for Network. She had previously been nominated for an Acadamey Award twice - first in 1967 for her role as Bonnie Parker opposite Warren Beatty in Bonnie and Clyde, and then for Chinatown in 1974.

This dawn shot, shows the American actress Faye Dunaway (his girlfriend at the time, O'Neill went on to marry Dunaway) lounging next to the swimming pool at the Beverly Hills Hotel the morning after winning the Academy Award for Best Actress. Several newspapers and magazines are scattered around her and her Oscar statuette prominently shown on a table beside her breakfast tray. O'Neill had to convince Faye Dunaway to wake up at 6 am for the shoot.

Terry O'Neill says: "I wanted to capture the look of dazed confusion, to capture that state of utter shock that Oscar winners enter, where they go to bed thrilled, then overnight, it dawns on them that they've changed, that they've just become a star. And not just a star, a millionaire. She isn't quite sure who she is any more. I waited for her to look away from the camera, and I got the shot. I look at this picture often, and I'm still so proud of it."

He also said of of Dunaway's success "When they realize suddenly they’re getting all these offers to do films, their value goes from $100,000 to $10 million, and they're just sort of stunned. I wanted to capture that."

Vanity Fair said: "No image better captures both the allure and the loneliness of celebrity than Terry O'Neill's 1977 photograph of his then girlfriend Faye Dunaway reflecting by the pool of the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Academy Award she won the previous night posing on the breakfast table."

A smaller version of this iconic work hangs in the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery in London. The gallery own a total of 75 portraits by O'Neill, one of the highest amount of portraits for any artist.

Terry O'Neill is among the most sought after artists in the UK and his works are highly collectable.
