I wanted to paint a portrait of Diana Rigg as Emma Peel with her far away look in perhaps, a far away place.
To a child of 6, more so than for an adult, not understanding
everything, The Avengers was enhanced as a wonderful surreal world.
Patrick Macnee played the eccentric, suave, immaculately dressed John
Steed and Diana Rigg played his cool partner in The Avengers from 1965 -
1967. She was a style icon of the period wearing tight zipped catsuits and
driving a Lotus Elan. Story lines usually involved fighting a
meglomaniac serial killer, killing top intelligence agents or business
men in the most bizarre methods imaginable. It had elements of science
fiction; the writers were futuristic in using ideas from up to the
minute explorations and breakthroughs in science. Sets were often
imaginative, bizarre, fantasy dream sequences, sometimes influenced by
Surrealism and German Expressionism in film with the use of dramatic distorted angles.
The name Emma Peel was taken from the British film industry expression
’M-Appeal’, man appeal.
Colours are as accurate as possible but may differ slightly due to various screen calibrations. Shipping outside UK is estimated as some countries vary so please enquire.
