National Portrait Gallery London associations & events

Some of the greatest portrait photographs of the twentieth century were taken for, or published in, Vanity Fair. This exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery features 150 classic images of significant people in art, film, music, sport, business and politics, from the magazine's early period (1913-36) to its subsequent re-birth in 1983.

Works by legendary photographers such as Edward Steichen and Cecil Beaton are shown alongside those of celebrated modern-day photographers such as Annie Leibovitz and Mario Testino.

With subjects as diverse as Claude Monet, Cary Grant and Madonna, Vanity Fair Portraits: Photographs 1913-2008 will, from 14th February to 26th May, 2008, present an exceptional range of photographic portraiture from the early years of the twentieth century to the present day.
