Cecil Beaton, Beetles+Huxley, 3-5 Swallow Street, London W1, until 20th May 2017
It would be remiss of me not to bring this exhibition of more than eighty Cecil Beaton photographs to your attention. They cover the early part of his career from the 1920s to the 1940s. Originally purchased in the early 50s these photographs have been in an American private collection for over sixty years.
You will discover the ‘Bright Young Things’ of the 20s, distinctive fashion pictures created for Vogue in the 30s, and wartime works for the Ministry of Works in the 2nd World War with Vivien Leigh, Queen Elizabeth consort of George VI), H G Wells and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor on their wedding day among the portraits on view.
