Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon open Summer 2015!

 

This fascinating photographic exhibition will illustrate the life of actress and fashion icon Audrey Hepburn (1929-1993). From her early years as a chorus girl in London’s West End through to her philanthropic work in later life, Portraits of an Icon will celebrate one of the world’s most photographed and recognisable stars.

A selection of more than sixty images will define Hepburn’s iconography, including classic and rarely seen prints from leading twentieth-century photographers such as Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, Angus McBean, Norman Parkinson and Irving Penn. Alongside these, an array of vintage magazine covers, film stills, and extraordinary archival material will complete her captivating story.

This fabulous exhibition, hosted in our intimate Porter Gallery, will add a touch of glamour to your event.  Give your guests the opportunity to privately view this much anticipated exhibition accompanied by an elegant reception in our contemporary Lerner Galleries, or a beautiful dinner in our Weldon Galleries. To host a Private View of this exhibition contact venuehire@npg.org.uk for further information.
