A Madame Yevonde portrait of Baba Beaton

Miss Baba Beaton is the younger of the two beautiful and attractive Beaton girls. They are among the most popular of the blonde ex-debs, and no party is complete without them. Both Miss Nancy and Miss Baba Beaton have often been photographed by their clever brother, but this double portrait is not one of Mr Cecil Beatons camera studies. Madame Yevonde was a prolific and ground-breaking society portrait and commercial photographer active between 1915 and 1975. She is particularly well-known for her astonishingly modern work using the Vivex colour process during the 1930 s. Her images of society folk and other personalities appeared regularly in The Sketch or The Tatler through the 1920s and 30 s

EDITORS COMMENTS
This double portrait captures the youthful charm and elegance of the Beaton sisters, Baba (left) and Nancy, in a rare photograph taken by the renowned British photographer Madame Yevonde in 1932. The sisters were popular figures in London society during the 1920s and 30s, known for their striking blonde beauty and charisma. While their brother, Cecil Beaton, was a prolific photographer in his own right, this portrait was not one of his camera studies. Instead, it is a testament to Madame Yevonde's groundbreaking work as a society portraitist. Madame Yevonde, born in 1893, was an influential and innovative photographer active between 1915 and 1975. She is best known for her modern and vibrant portraits using the Vivex colour process during the 1930s. Her images of society folk and personalities regularly appeared in prestigious publications such as The Sketch and The Tatler. This double portrait of Baba and Nancy, taken on the 9th of December in 1932, is a prime example of her ability to capture the essence of her subjects with remarkable clarity and detail. The sisters, who were often photographed together, were a fixture at London parties and social events. Their presence was said to make any gathering complete. Baba, the younger of the two, is depicted here with a playful expression and a hint of mischief in her eyes, while Nancy exudes a more serious and refined demeanor. This double portrait is a fascinating glimpse into the past, offering a glimpse into the lives of two beautiful and popular young women of the 1930s.
