WHEN:

On 25th February 2016 only
Paid Entry (£8.00)

WHERE:

National Portrait Gallery, St. Martin's Place, London, WC2H 0HE

WHAT:

In this talk, Josephine Ross, author of Beaton in Vogue, explores Cecil Beaton's career with Vogue from his first, undergraduate, snap of a Cambridge student drama production, published in l926, and early contributions as a writer and illustrator for the social pages, through his emergence, under the aegis of Vogue's proprietor, Conde Nast, as an ‘all-round talent’ - chronicling, in articles and illustrations, as well as iconic photographs, the fashions, faces and events of the changing times, over six decades, to create today an extraordinary historic and artistic legacy, within the pages of what he called ‘This fascinating magazine’.
Josephine Ross worked for Vogue on leaving university, before becoming a full-time writer. Besides Beaton in Vogue, her publications include Society in Vogue; Royalty in Vogue and the two Vogue Bedside Books, as well as Jane Austen, A Companion and a number of other histories and biographies.
