Cecil Beaton and Kenneth Tynan
London: Wingate, 1953
Two egomaniacs with self-appointed 'exquisite' taste, photographer Cecil Beaton and theater critic Kenneth Tynan join forces to identify the 100 most important figures in the Arts, at the mid-century.
From Graham Greene and Somerset Maugham to Picasso and Henry Moore, or Greta Garbo and Colette to Truman Capote and Francis Bacon, their vision was pretty spot on.
Hardcover, with chip from jacket spine and owner name to first end page.
