A portrait of Vivien Leigh by Angus McBean Featured Print

A portrait of Vivien Leigh by Angus McBean

A photographic portrait of actress Vivien Leigh 'surrealised' into the figure of Aurora, Goddess of Dawn. Angus McBean (1904-1990), began his career in the theatre making masks and designing sets. He took an interest in photography from an early age and from the early 1930s took it up as a profession after a stint as a window dresser in the department store, Liberty's. McBean's work was famous for being surreal and experimental, with work frequently featured in TheTatler and Bystander and The Sketch between the mid 1930s to the 1950s. Date: 6th April 1938

The Royal Dolls by Angus McBean Featured Print

The Royal Dolls by Angus McBean

Dolls in the form of the royal princesses, Princess Elizabeth (Queen Elizabeth II) and Princess Margaret Rose, together with their younger cousin, Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, which aroused much interest when they were displayed at the British Industries Fair in February 1938. Manufactured by Chad Valley, they had had permission to make a doll of Princess Elizabeth since 1930 and had remodelled her from time to time as she grew older. Royal visitors to the stand, the King and Queen, as well as Queen Mary commented on the likeness of the dolls and the Duke of Kent was overheard to remark on the model of his son that is was, "just like the boy." Date: 1938
