Cecil Beaton's Bright Young ThingsFrom fashion shoots for Vogue and redefining portraits of the Royal Family to compassionate documentation of the Second World War and dazzling shots of the golden age of Hollywood, Cecil Beaton had an illustrious, wide-ranging photography career and this spring the National Portrait Gallery will be putting his works in the spotlight once again with its new exhibition, Cecil Beaton's Bright Young Things. Putting rarely exhibited prints by the renowned photographer on display, the exhibition will explore the glamorous world of the 'Bright Young Things' of the twenties and thirties featuring the likes of socialite Edwina Mountbatten, composer William Walton and costume designer Oliver Messel. A celebrity in his own right, Beaton's own life will also be touched upon through self-portraits and third-party captures.

 

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
