Paul Tanqueray (1905-1991), Photographer

Sitter in 8 portraits
Artist of 168 portraits
Paul Tanqueray was born on 14 January 1905 in Littlehampton, Sussex. He opened his first studio at 139, High Street, Kensington in 1925. Five years of success in Kensington led to a move to the West End of London at 8, Dover Street. Tanqueray's photographs appeared in The Sketch and The Tatler and most frequently inside and on the cover of Theatre World. During the Second World War Tanqueray worked with the Chelsea Civil Defence and then re-opened his studio at 30, Thurloe Place in South Kensington where he continued to take photographs until his retirement in 1965. In 1983 Tanqueray donated his negative collection of celebrities to the National Portrait Gallery, which joined 67 prints previously given in 1975.
