Sotheby’s Dubai is to host the first exhibition of Cecil Beaton photographs ever to take place in the Middle East. The exhibition, which is open from 8 to 27 May, showcases the very best of Beaton's portraits from Sotheby’s own Cecil Beaton Studio Archive. Undoubtedly the most significant British-born portrait photographer of the 20th century, he captured the best and most magical images of stars of the stage and screen, royalty, artists, and society’s most glamourous and influential characters. Click ahead to see Cecil Beaton's authorised biographer Hugo Vickers’s picks from the exhibition and to read quotes from Beaton himself about his famous subjects.
