Christy's Art Center Displays Bert Stern's Stills and Sketches in "Lolita in Sag Harbor" by Stephanie Murg originally published in Hamptons Magazine. 

“Lolita in Sag Harbor” explores an iconic movie image in the place where it came to life.

Little-known fact: The famous poster image of Sue Lyon, star of Stanley Kubrick’s 1962 film Lolita—with heartshaped sunglasses, pursed lips, and lollipop, all gleaming cherry-red— was created in Sag Harbor. The sultry publicity stills shot by legendary photographer Bert Stern are now on display, with his sketches and notes, at Christy’s Art Center.
