Exhibition | Publication

Some of the greatest portrait photographs of the twentieth century were taken for, or published in, Vanity Fair. This exhibition features 150 classic images from both the magazine's first period (1913­36) and subsequent re-birth in 1983 of significant people in art, film, music, sport, business and politics. Works by legendary photographers such as Edward Steichen and Cecil Beaton are shown alongside those of celebrated modern-day photographers such as Annie Leibovitz and Mario Testino.

With subjects as diverse as Claude Monet, Cary Grant and Madonna, this exhibition presents an exceptional range of photographic portraiture from the early years of the twentieth century to the present day.
