A true design genius. Cecil Beaton fed off the aura of high society; reflected it, adorned it and gave it back a romantic alluring sheen that fictionalized its existence. His Scenic Designs received thunderous ovations even before the actors came on stage. Here is pictured the set for the 1959 production of "Look After Lulu."
I have such respect for a man who was a photographer, artist, costume and set designer and a man who saw the world through a marvelous set of "golden eyes."
