Title Angus McBean - Portraits

Author McBean, Angus


ISBN: 9781580931748

Condition: Hardcover



Cecil Beaton called him the best photographer in Britain; Lord Snowden declared him a genius. It is no exaggeration to say that Angus McBean revolutionized portraiture in the 1930s, or that he immortalized the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Marlene Dietrich, and Elizabeth Taylor in innovative and surprising settings that sometimes echoed the Surrealists. For the first time since his death in 1990, McBean's photographs of such stars as Vivien Leigh, Peggy Ashcroft, Laurence Olivier, John Gielgud, and Katharine Hepburn, and his rarely seen color prints from the 1960s of the Beatles, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Shirley Bassey, are brought together in this intriguing monograph, reproduced in 98 duotone and color illustrations.

Author Angus McBean, photos. Terence Pepper, ed. Paul McCartney, interview.
