Notes

Limited edition, number 760 of 1,000 copies. Beaton "made a name for himself taking glamorous photographic portraits of the 'bright young things' of the day, who soon thirsted for his talent and by the end of the 1920s - a decade which Beaton may be said to personify - he had been granted sittings by all whom he had aspired to photograph, except Queen Mary and Virginia Woolf" (ODNB). The glamour portraits presented here include Audrey Hepburn, Frank Sinatra, and Marilyn Monroe.
