Cecil Beaton: Portraits and Profiles

Cecil Beaton: Portraits and Profiles, another new photo book, was featured in the Mail this weekend (photos from the article captured here by Fraser Penney.) Beaton’s essay about Marilyn will be familiar to fans, and given his acerbic comments about other celebrities, it seems she was one of the few he liked.┬áMarilyn, in turn, kept a triptych of his portraits in her New York apartment. You can read more about Beaton and their 1956 collaboration here.
