A rare shot of Orson Welles, in Paris, back in 1952.

Dutch photographer Fred Brommet (1924-2008) visited the chic capital of France, which attracted many bohemian artist, writers, dancers, musicians and photographers including film director Orson Welles. Brommet took this lovely portrait of him in 1952.

For a bigger doze of Welles, check him out on the cover of Vogue here & with Anthony Perkins on the set of The Trial here.
