Cecil Beaton photographed the British royal family from 1930 until his death in 1979

Cecil Beaton photographed the British royal family from 1930 until his death in 1979. Last year, his secretary bequeathed his thousands of prints, color transparencies and negatives to the Victoria & Albert Museum. In this handsome book, Roy Strong, museum director until 1987, presents 290 of the pictures, 20 in color, interposing Beaton's candid and sometimes biting diary entries about the sittings. Before-and-after proofs show why the Duke of Windsor ("he has common handslike a little mechanic") insisted on airbrushing and retouching.

  • This book can be summed up quite succinctly; several hundred beautiful photographs, in a mixture of color and black-and-white, many in full-page format, of the members of Britain's Royal Family over some fifty years from the 1930's to the 1970's.

  • Book ful of beautiful pictures, of the British r total family, with interesting notations

  • Renowned royal photographer, Cecil Beaton, photographed many members of the House of Windsor between the years 1933-1979. The list is impressive, covering Kings and Queens, and their offspring. The full-length color portraits within capture the English royalty through the different eras of fashion and of what was vogue back in the day. Within the pages of this coffee-table book are arresting portraits of Queen Elizabeth as a young, new queen, and as a young mother. Also captured are beautiful portraits of Princess Margaret, Princess Alexandra, and more.

    This book can be perused at leisure - one can flip through the pages, appreciating just the photographs, but if you wish to gain insight into Beaton's approach to portrait photography, then the text does a fine job of explaining Beaton's thoughts, his delight in a certain subject's commitment to the perfect portrait, and also his frustrations at those who didn't quite embrace the process. Those who enjoy reading about English royalty (nothing on Diana or her children in here) and especially interested in Cecil Beaton's work as a royal photographer, will enjoy this.

  • Beaton is always interesting. His pictures are a a slice of life seen through the eyes of an insider. He traveled in lofty circles.
