Baron Studios

(active 1954-1974)

Artist associated with 1297 portraits
Founded by the dance, film and celebrity photographer Baron (born Sterling Henry Nahum) , 1906-56, the studios operated between 1954 and 1974 from London studios on Brick Street, Park Lane and Mayfair. They employed a number of operators including Count Zichy and principally Rex Coleman. Though primarily consisting of over 10,000 studio portraits of businessmen, many of the more interesting subjects, including those in colour or on location, portray writers, musicians, foreign dignitaries, artists, broadcasters and fashion designers. Godfrey Argent purchased Baron Studios in 1974 and the collection was generously donated to the National Portrait Gallery in 1999.
