Judith Eurich from the sale room said…

This is an absolutely stunning image and it is just a beautiful tone of grey. It is not just black and white it is grey and silvery.
Madonna was posing for a number of photographers at the time this was taken in the 1990s when she was in her early 30s.
She was going through a phase of having bleach blonde hair and heavy dark eye make-up that gave her a dramatic look – and of course she has a gorgeous body.
She is a very healthy person and I’d imagine the cigarette is just a prop to make her look sexy and sultry.
There are Madonna superfans and devotees across the world who would love to own it.
