Cecil Beaton was a photographer, illustrator, designer and writer. In the 60s he photographed The Rolling Stones, Penelope Tree and Twiggy, among others, and was as much a part of swinging London as they were. With a breathtaking range of artistic talents, he rose through English society to become portraitist of royalty, designer of theater and film sets and a true Renaissance personality. He's surprised by the congeniality of Princess Grace of Monaco, wooed by the petulant and perturbing Greta Garbo, chilled by the cold intellect of Robert Oppenheimer, sniping about Rudolph Nureyev with George Balanchine, competitive with Truman Capote, and adoring of Audrey (and Katharine) Hepburn. In this gossipy peep into the upper strata of artistic, intellectual and moneyed circles in an electric and tempestuous time, Beaton sees all with an artist's acuity, a photographer's sharpness and the keen intuition of a writer with something vital to say.--From publisher description.
