Nancy Beaton as a Shooting Star for the Galaxy Ball, 1929. A
s soon as you begin looking into photography, or film, or theatre, or fashion, or design, or the Second World War, or the Royal Family, or in fact almost anything that happened in the 20th century, you meet Cecil Beaton. And then you go on meeting him, because his influence has been so far-reaching.

Over his near 70-year career, the British aesthete, who died in 1980, filled hundreds of sketchbooks, wrote hundreds of thousands of words, designed hundreds of costumes and sets and exposed thousands of rolls of film of such distinction that his thoughts and images have remained in almost perpetual circulation.

He was fuelled, he once said, by the fear of being ordinary. The idea that he might be thought of as such tormented him, as did his ambition, which was furious, all-consuming and made him, as David Bailey remarks, in a new documentary about Beaton, Love, Cecil, “a terrible social climber.”

Cecil Beaton, Marquise de Casa Maury, 1928. “Be daring, be different, be impractical,” he once declared. “Be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.”

Baba Beaton: a symphony in silver
by Cecil Beaton, 1925. Time for a deep dig on Cecil Beaton. From the Natinoal Portrait Gallery: Beaton acquired his first camera aged 11 and the exhibition opens with a portrait of his sister Baba, taken a few years later, in 1922. A number of vintage prints from Beaton's first exhibition (1927), notable for their striking red Beaton signature, have been reunited, including a celebrated portrait of Edith Sitwell posed as a gothic tomb sculpture. Edith Sitwell and her family's patronage confirmed Beaton's position as the most fashionable young photographer of the day and led to a number of exciting commissions, including a contract with Vogue, with whom Beaton was associated for over 50 years.
Other significant portraits from this early period include Nancy Cunard in front of a polka dot backdrop, the writers and poets Sylvia Townsend Warner, Stephen Tennant and Siegfried Sassoon, and bright young things including the Jungman twins, Tallulah Bankhead, and three young debutantes posing as "Soapsuds".

André Kertész, A Window on the Quai Voltaire. Kertész's work had widespread and diverse effects on many photographers, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, and Brassaï, who counted him as a mentor during the late 1920s and early 1930s. His personal work in the 1960s and 1970s inspired countless other contemporary photographers. Kertész combined a photojournalistic interest in movement and gesture with a formalist concern for abstract shapes; hence his work has historical significance in all areas of postwar photography.

André Kertész, Mr. Caillot's Dog and Keys of Notre Dame, 1928. He notably maintained a palpable empathy for his subjects, setting aside political or social biases regardless of who he was photographing. Born Kertész Andor on July 2, 1894 in Budapest, Austria-Hungary, he came from a Jewish middle-class background. Though his family expected him to pursue a career in business, he eventually moved to Paris and fell with its bohemian culture. Throughout the mid-1920s, he met Piet Mondrian, Sergei Eisenstein, and many of the Dadaists

André Kertész, Satiric Dancer, 1926. André Kertész was a Hungarian photographer who emerged as one of the most influential practitioners of the medium. Prizing emotional impact over technique, he famously remarked, “I just walk around, observing the subject from various angles until the picture elements arrange themselves into a composition that pleases my eye.” Kertész remains best known for his contributions to photojournalism, employing distinctively dynamic compositions throughout his influential photo essays.

Daisy Fellowes. Contemporary sources tend to put a Borgia-like spin on the formidably witty Fellowes, painting her as a Molotov cocktail in a Mainbocher suit. Gingerly noted in the catalogue -- which is encyclopedic in scope but pocked with idiosyncratic spellings and minor misinformations -- is her reputation for ''malicious remarks.'' She also happened to be a trailblazing editor in chief of French Harper's Bazaar, a closet philanthropist (she secretly donated her salary to an orphanage) and the author of a handful of sexy, mordant novels.

I sometimes get asked who my #favoritephotographer is, or who were most influential on my own work. Without hesitation I would say the 60’s school #garywinogrand #robertfrank #leefriedlander for one aspect of my oeuvre but also if not more significantly #lartigue #larryclark #nangoldin - but if I were to dig deeper I would have no problem claiming that my own #familyarchive from the #middleeast mostly #lebanon but also Damascus and Aleppo have definitely made a mark. There are some remarkable examples of #vernacular photography in the lot. Not least the #selfportraits of my uncle Tony - the first three are a case in point - He would also caption them on the back - i.e. the borrowed #pipe for the photo - the second photo was totally staged with his #admiring wife Piera adoring him - if you look closely in the mirror you will see the camera on a tripod a la #vaneyck and finally the #chessgame - There are probably other gems with my cousins. He was a #schoolteacher (No 5 with his pupils) and a #radiojockey and the most intellectual of his eight siblings. He went to Rome on a radio assignment, met Piera and never came back.



The advent of the selfie has all but trampled on the art of the Selfportrait which I have been making regularly since 1975. You can see many on my other insta @luciensamaha_myself - furthermore the new selfie enhancement apps are quite powerful but with significant social consequences - strangely i’ve never been fond of Cindy Sherman’s work - the last photo is of Tony surrounded by family at the #portofbeirut about to embark on the ship to Italy - that’s my grandfather with the #tarboush or #fez

Mrs Reginald Fellowes by Cecil Beaton, 1930’s. Daisy kept two yachts on the go, crewed and ready for action, in the Mediterranean. Her hospitality was lavish, but it came at a price.
Society photographer Cecil Beaton jumped ship after a brutal few days cooped up with his hostess under azure-blue skies: ‘Daisy has been impossible. She bullies one person, keeping the others on her side until it’s time to bully the next person. She is spoilt, capricious, and wicked.’ Other guests on her bigger yacht, the Sister Anne, included the Prince of Wales and a then unknown American, Wallis Simpson. The romance between the soon-to-be King and his divorcee was still fresh, ‘otherwise, make no mistake, Daisy would have gone for him’, observed a fellow passenger.

It was 1935 and the world would have to wait another year to discover who the Prince loved enough to give up his throne for — but in the calm waters of the Mediterranean Daisy Fellowes was already privy to the country’s most devastating secret.

Daisy Fellowes as La Reine d’Afrique (in Christian Dior and attended by James Caffery, as her page)
‘Ball in Venice’, November 1951. One especially dramatic example of the highly creative jewels designed by Boivin in 1936, one of which was sold in Sotheby’s Geneva in 1991, was a pair of brooches designed as the wing of a pigeon. With the impressive wingspan of almost 13cm in width of each brooch, the wing’s glorious plumes consisted of pave-set circular and baguette-cut diamonds and calibre-cut sapphires. Some of the specially cut sapphires were acquired by Daisy in Ceylon during one of her voyages aboard her yacht Sister Anne. She reportedly spent many hours on the sun-drenched deck of the boat musing as to what jewel the stones should embellish, the brooch possibly being inspired by the countless winged species soaring in and out of view.

Photograph by Wladimir Rehbinder. Published in Vogue, September 15, 1923.. Her penchant for exotic jewels, or in close friend and photographer Cecil Beaton’s words, ‘barbaric jewels’, is readily evident in the tantalizing few pieces from her incredible collection that have been sold at auction. From the pair of Indian-inspired diamond and emerald bead manchettes by Van Cleef & Arpels to her hallowed ‘Collier Hindou’ necklace by Cartier, Daisy’s jewelry acquisitions include some of the most innovative and most important, not to mention the most stunning, jewels to date.

Daisy Fellowes wearing the Tutti Frutti necklace, or ‘Collier Hindou’, created in 1936 by Cartier. Adorning her cutting-edge clothes designed by avant-garde fashion doyennes Elsa Schiaparelli and Chanel were her magnificent jewels. Passionate about fine jewels from an early age, Daisy patronized the leading jewelers of her time: Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels and Boivin. Daisy was so famous for her splendid jewelry that press reporters and fashion magazines would watch her like hawks to see with which new jewel the stylish Mrs. Fellowes would next stun the world.

Daisy Fellows wearing Schiaparelli, 1933. Daisy’s transformative makeover included a complete overhaul of all the superficial aspects of her appearance as well as her own intellectual acumen. Unhappy with the bridge line of her nose, Daisy bravely had it surgically reshaped without the use of any anesthetics. With the painful part behind her, a new hairdresser and a whole new wardrobe of clothes in the latest fashions completed the look of the new Daisy; however, she was not content to stop at just dressing the part, as one of her social standing should. She realized the importance in life of a well-rounded knowledge of literature and the arts and, in recognizing her own lack of this social advantage, she immersed herself in a sea of books and visited endless museums and art galleries.

Daisy Fellowes by Ilse Bing, Harper's Bazaar, 1933. Daisy Fellowes was also the living embodiment of Thirties chic, a style icon who inspired designers Chanel and Schiaparelli and who wore so many jewels they weighed her tiny body down.
Heiress to the Singer sewing machine empire, she was ‘the very picture of fashionable depravity’, according to her rival Lady Diana Cooper. And Lady Diana should know — Daisy bedded her husband and determinedly remained his mistress for 17 years.
The uber-rich Mrs Fellowes was also the greatest collector of fine jewellery the 20th century ever saw.

Daisy Fellowes 1930’s. In 1933, she was appointed as the French Harper's Bazaar editor in chief: a job she quit two years later because she found it boring. As a trendsetter from the Roaring Twenties on through the café-society 1930s, Daisy Fellowes 'launched more fashions than any other woman in the world' according to Jean Cocteau.

Daisy Fellowes by Cecil Beaton, 1920’s. Daisy Fellowes took great pleasure in making her counterparts seem frivolously overdressed: at the races, she appeared hatless amid a raft of flounces and bows, she hosted dinners in leopard-print pyjamas while others wore flowery tea gowns. Women feared her as much as admired her: she was a voracious man-eater and terribly cruel.

Man Ray, Nancy with bracelets, 1926. Fearless, original, striking and, in those early days before she broke with her mother and the money ran out, rich; no wonder Cunard bowled over so many of the writers and artists of the period. Seductive, difficult women characters based on her can be recognised in books by Michael Arlen and Richard Aldington.

Man Ray, Nancy with bracelets, 1926. Writing about her later, many of her friends recalled her physical impact; not just her dazzling looks but the way she moved. "Her walk also enchanted," wrote the critic Raymond Mortimer, "the head held high with its short fair hair, and one foot placed exactly in front of the other, not with mannequin languor, but spontaneously, briskly, boldly, skimming the pavement. Never in her life, I believe, was she frightened of anything." Aldous Huxley, who was briefly obsessed with her, gave the heroine of his 1923 novel Antic HayCunard's walk.

Man Ray, Tristan Tzara kneeling to kiss Nancy Cunard's hand, Bal du Comte de Beaumont, 1924. Cunard cut her hair into a chic bob, scraped it flat across her forehead and plastered kiss curls on her cheeks; she outlined her pale eyes with black kohl, painted her small mouth dark red and took to the new short-skirted shift dresses with relish. She smoked and drank dramatically and would brandish a long cigarette holder; after she became seriously interested in African art and culture in the late 20s and was living tempestuously with Henry Crowder, a black American jazz musician, she often wore old African ivory bracelets up her slender arms from wrist to elbow. These bracelets became her trademark, long before the "ethnic" look was invented. Sometimes they were also a weapon; the New Yorker writer Janet Flanner, half in love with Cunard herself, met Crowder on the street one day and asked him why he was bruised. "Just bracelet work, Miss Janet," he calmly replied.

Nancy Cunard, Harlem, 1932. In the mid-1930s, Cunard trained her fire on the rise of fascism in Europe, writing about Mussolini and the Spanish Civil War, and organising relief missions for Spanish refugees. In 1937 she canvassed 200 leading writers for their opinions on the situation in Spain; 126 of the 147 writers who completed her questionnaire came out in favour of the legal Republican government. Cunard was one of the most vocal anti-fascists of her time.

Nancy Cunard by Cecil Beaton 1929. Hours Press would continue to publish avant-garde writing throughout the 1920s, including the poems of Samuel Beckett, Pound’s A Draft of XXX Cantos, and two books by Laura Riding. It was also in 1928 that Cunard began an affair with Henry Crowder, a black American jazz musician. The relationship caused a major scandal, both in the newspapers and with her mother.
In 1931, the backlash from her family and the press prompted Cunard to write and publish Black Man and White Ladyship, an essay in which she hit out at the racism of her mother and the wider world. She also edited the massive Negro Anthology, published in 1933, which included poetry, fiction and non-fiction by African-American authors including Louis Armstrong, W. E. B. DuBois, Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston.

Nancy Cunard by Cecil Beaton 1929. In 1924, Man Ray took her portrait with Tzara as the pair were en route to a society fancy dress ball; Nancy wore a gold brocade trouser suit, gold mask and her father’s top hat. It was probably Tzara who introduced Cunard to Constantin Brancusi, who began his African-influenced sculpture Nancy Cunard, also called The Sophisticated Young Lady, in 1925. It was a work that took two years to complete.
Cunard believed deeply in ‘the sacred mission of art to change history’. It was this philosophy that led her, in 1928, to take over the Three Mountains Press, which had previously published work by Hemingway, Pound and William Carlos Williams, renaming it the Hours Press.

Nancy Cunard by Curtis Moffat 1925. Born in 1896, Nancy was the only child of Sir Bache Cunard, heir to the Cunard shipping line fortune, and Maude Burke, a San Francisco heiress who had tired with the sporting life, moved to London and changed her name to Emerald. Nancy’s mother would later become the close companion of the writer George Moore, and subsequently the lover and patron of conductor Sir Thomas Beecham. She befriended and financed Wallis Simpson — the American socialite and lover of Edward, Prince of Wales — in the hopes that if Simpson eventually became Queen, Cunard would be appointed one of her ladies-in-waiting.

In the image, her eyes are heavily kohl’d; her hair is cropped and her arms are piled with her signature wood, gold and ivory bangles. ‘Journalists and critics lambasted her appearance,’ wrote Shola von Reynolds in AnOther magazine, ‘but she simultaneously served as beacon to a large cast of photographers, painters and sculptors, all drawn in by the irresistible pull of something unknown.’

Nancy Cunard by Man Ray , 1926. I spent just a bit of time on Nancy Cunard. Now I’m digging deeper as still in Muse mode! Nancy Cunard was a strikingly beautiful woman, inspiring Constantin Brancusi and establishing a bohemian-like dramatic fashion identity, piling stacks of African bracelets on her arms that evoked her passion for African art – her signature style entitled the 'barbaric look'. With a tragic taste for self-destruction, Nancy Cunard slowly declined and died insane and poor. She nonetheless remains the embodiment of the Jazz Age, a dissident heroine who 'hated fascism...and snobbery.’
