Sir Cecil Beaton at Chris Beetles in Association With Sotheby's

22 APRIL - 16 MAY 2009

Chris Beetles Gallery is about to have an exhibition of Cecil Beaton photographs in collaboration with Sotheby’s. From 22 April – 16 May 2009 photographs taken by this amazing photographer, will be on display in Chris Beetles newly refurbished Ryder Street galleries.

Born in 1904 in London and coming of age at the peak of the 20s, Cecil Beaton was in love with the worlds of high society, theater, and glamour. Beauty in his hands was transformed into elegance, fantasy, romance and charm.
His inspired amateurism led to a following among fashionable debutantes and eventually a career as the foremost fashion and portrait photographer of his day. He was so attuned to the changes of fashion that his career maintained its momentum for five decades; from the Sitwells to the Rolling Stones. Beaton died in 1980.
