Last Chance: Cecil Beaton In New York

If you haven’t made it to the Museum of the City of New York for its Cecil Beaton exhibit, this weekend is your last chance.

Cecil Beaton: The New York Years” spans the ’20s to the ’60s, when the British artist lived in New York designing costumes, sketching and taking photographs. Writes the museum:

Beaton’s relentless energy and curiosity spurred him to pursue new fields, from fashion and portrait photography to costume and scenic design for Broadway, ballet, and opera, and to put his own aesthetic stamp on each of these endeavors.

A lavish book (pictured above), written by curator Donald Albrecht and co-published by Rizzoli, accompanies the exhibit.
