In 1990 John Heys staged a one-man show as an homage to Diana Vreeland at La Mama E.T.C., N.Y.C., which the playwright Sebastian Stuart called "a unique theatrical experience, as fabulous and fascinating as Diana herself". The intriguing portrait offered here captures Heys' talent of embodying the personae of Vreeland. Today Heys lives and works in Berlin. A print of this image is in the collection of the Folkwang Museum, Essen and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
