RUSSELHEIM.- The Opelvillen Museum in Rüsselsheim will open a photographic exhibition on Austrian actress Romy Schneider with a collection of 130 portraits, 40 of which have never been exhibited. The exhibition is titled "Memory is Frequently Prettier - Photographic Portraits of Romy Schneider" and will show daily scenes and professional scenes of the actress that became famous for playing the part of "Sissi", empress Elizabeth of Austria.

The exhibition will be on view through December 28 and includes images taaken by photographers such as Werner Bokelberg, Peter Brüchmann and Roger Fritz.

Exhibition curator Beate Kemfert said, "Romy Schneider was photographed thousands of times, nevertheless she was always enigmatic.

Among the images is a portrait by Herbert List of the teenage artist, who only photographed her once, as well as a series by Robert Lebeck from the 1950's.

The actress, whose real name was Rosemarie Albach Retty, is shown next to French actor Alain Delon, or with her sons, in different facets: happy, thoughtful, seductive or vulnerable.

Accordinf to Kemfert the images in the exhibition "allow the myth of Romy stay alive and at the same time make visivle the efimerous of the existence."

The actress would have been 70 years old on September 23. She was found dead in 1982 at her home in Paris at the age of 43.
