Dealer Notes
Sir Cecil Beaton (1904-1980) was an English photographer, painter, writer, and designer. Besides regularly working as a photographer for Condé Nast publications, such as the Vogue, he pursued a career as a stage and costume designer for films and the theatre. He won three Academy Awards for his art directorial work as well as for his costume designs. His 1948 book is a homage to New York in which he gives a personal picture of the city through text, photographs, and drawings.
