Celebrated as one of Great Britain’s most influential portrait photographers, Cecil Beaton (1904-1980) was among the greatest visual chroniclers of the Twentieth Century. This distinguished photographer spent many years as a major contributor to Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Life, The Sketch and Tatler, photographing the most notable names in fashion, film, the arts and society. Although Beaton’s career spanned some 50 years and embraced painting, interior design, costume and more, some of his best-known works are his fashion photographs of the 1930s.
Cecil Beaton: Thirty from the 30s presents some of Beaton’s most influential and recognisable portraits, featuring subjects including Salvador Dali, Elsa Schiaparelli, Marlene Dietrich and Katharine Hepburn.
Here is Elsa Schiaparelli wearing one of her 1931 Haute Couture best-sellers: a white cock feather short cape worn over a white silk crepe gown with trompe l’oeil pleats painted by artist Jean Dunand.
