Audrey Hepburn; Portraits Of An icon
“This fascinating photographic exhibition illustrates the life of actress and fashion icon Audrey Hepburn (1929-1993). From her early years as a chorus girl in London’s West End through to her philanthropic work in later life, Portraits of an Icon will celebrate one of the worlds most photographed and recognisable stars.
A selection of more than seventy images defines Hepburn’s iconography, including classic and rarely seen prints from leading twentieth-century photographers such as Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, Terry O’Neill, Norman Parkinson and Irving Penn. Alongside these, an array of vintage magazine covers, film stills, and extraordinary archival material will complete her captivating story.”
This morning I had the great pleasure to see this exhibition.
At the National Portrait Gallery in London, Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of An Icon is showing until the 18th October.
The exhibition is small but the resulting feel good factor enormous.
What an extraordinary woman. Run, don’t walk, xv.
