Cecil Beaton and the Theatre

12th June - 31st August

The exhibition will centre on a collection of Cecil Beaton’s work relating to theatrical productions of the 1950s.

This decade accounted for some his most memorable designs for the stage, including a significant body of work for great figures in the world of ballet such as Frederick Ashton and George Balanchine and culminating in his iconic work on the play and film of Lerner and Loewe's musical "My Fair Lady".

Beaton, best known for his elegant photographs of high society, was a familiar guest at the Palace, attending parties and weekend breaks alongside a host of aristocrats, artists and writers.
