“Sometimes I worked with just a background of a rock or a tree or black velvet, and just had to imagine the whole thing”.
Fay Wray

Fay Wray is universally remembered as the woman in the hands of the giant King Kong in the movie of 1933.
The cinematography in those days brought incredible adventures with few resources at its disposal, the special effects were far from disparate technologies used today.
Yet in that world of adventure and fantasy, films are incredible and genius that gave the impetus to what we can see today, confirming its status as a medium of mass communication.
The imagination of the viewer was stirred with strokes of genius and creativity, and sometimes, as Fay Wray reminds us, with a plain background, sometimes only a black velvet, added the rest to the imagination something attractive in itself, as in the painting that I propose.
