Cecil Beaton: The Art of the Scrapbook

$250

At Assouline

As one of the twentieth century’s most important photographers, Cecil Beaton helped invent the cult of the celebrity image while pushing the boundaries of his art form with innovative techniques and staging. In the course of his decades-long career as a photographer for Vogue and Vanity Fair, as well as a British war correspondent, Cecil Beaton documented lives both famous and quotidian—including his own, in dozens of scrapbooks now held by Sotheby’s London. In these pages, reproduced here for the very first time, the inner vision of the man behind the camera takes center stage. Composed of his own prints and of clippings from magazines, newspapers, and playbills, the pages are an instructive record of his creative process. His famous eye alighted on society figures, royals, dancers, actors, statesmen, and natives in ceremonial garb, picking out visual rhymes and witty juxtapositions. To flip through the pages is to enter a fabulous and surreal party where Tallulah Bankhead rubs shoulders with a bust of Voltaire and a portrait of Stravinsky; where Beaton’s first trip on the Queen Mary coincides with Queen Elizabeth’s coronation. The precursor to the “mood board,” Beaton’s scrapbooks allowed the artist to play with pictures he had taken (and perhaps those he wished he had) in the dreamspace of artifice that was always his favorite setting. Sir Cecil Walter Hardy Beaton (January 14, 1904 – January 18, 1980) was an English fashion and portrait photographer. Educated at Harrow and St. John’s College, Cambridge, Beaton picked up photography on his own. At the end of his college career in 1925, he had set up his own successful photography studio. One of his earliest clients and, later, best friends was Stephen Tennant; Beaton’s photographs of Tennant and his circle are considered some of the best representations of the “young England” of the twenties and thirties. Beaton is best known for his fashion photographs and society portraits. He worked a. Buy from Assouline

Korean artist Ahae took one million photographs over a two-year period, through one window in his house. This profoundly intimate portfolio captures the infinite subtle changes of the environment through the circle of the seasons. Featuring the artist’s poems and a foreword by the director of the Louvre, which will host an exhibition of images from this astonishing series. "There are times in our lives when serendipity accelerates events and the exceptional can occur. In September last year I sat next to the guest of a mutual friend at a lunch in Malaysia. He told me about an artist who had created a grand experiment, taking one million photographs in two years. What is more remarkable than this unprecedented feat is that the photographs were taken, and continue to be taken, from a single window. The photographer Ahae (a name which means “child” in ancient Korean) has faithfully captured his vision of a landscape carefully preserved and protected for the last two decades. He invites us to see the extraordinary in the apparently ordinary. A change in light or a change in the weather can make an object appear quite different. The same water surface can resemble rock or a pool of mercury, the silhouette of a bird caught in the sunlight like a delicate drawing...". Buy from Assouline

Chaumet: Photography, Arts, Fetes

$75

At Assouline

Chaumet, established in 1780, is one of the crown jewels of Place Vendôme, the first fine jeweler on the square, and today Chaumet continues its legacy of fine technical craftsmanship and innovative, sophisticated design with ever more inspired high jewelry collections. Following the release in 2016 of a first slipcase set of Mémoire volumes, on Place Vendôme, Tiaras, and Naturalism, Assouline introduces a second set on the themes of Photography, the Arts, and Fetes, seen through the lens of more than two centuries of history and the evolution of Chaumet’s artistic creations. An Artistic Heart (by Jérôme Neutres)A high jewelry atelier is a veritable orchestra of virtuoso artists creating a symphony of harmonious jewels. Composed and conducted by exceptional painters, designers, and sculptors, Chaumet’s style has evolved in synergy with the major artistic movements. Collected by the greatest connoisseurs, the house’s creations are poetic works of art, culture, sculpture, and light. A Discerning Eye (by Gabriel Bauret) Keeping a meticulous visual record of its fine jewelry creations, Chaumet pioneered the use of photography by establishing an in-house photographic studio in 1890, to immortalize each jewel, to document the life of the maison, and to conduct scientific studies of gemstones. Lifting the veil from this unprecedented treasure offers a panorama of the development of photographic techniques, creating a dialogue between the late nineteenth century and modern photographers such as still life master Guido Mocafico, whose photographs produced especially for this book are the result of focusing his gaze on Chaumet’s photographic archives. *SEP**SEP* Antoine de Baecque is a historian specializing in the Enlightenment and the French Revolution, and a film critic specializing in the French New Wave and contemporary theater.
