When I saw this one on the Portrait Gallery’s list of forthcoming attractions I can’t say it made my ears prick up.
But the luvvies are chattering loud about it. So I dutifully inform you.
The NPG’s blurb says this:
- Vanity Fair Portraits: Photographs 1913-2008
12 June – 30 August 2009
Vanity Fair Portraits traces the birth and evolution of photographic portraiture through the archives of Vanity Fair magazine. Visitors can expect to see many familiar and famous faces in this exhibition depicting the history of celebrity portraiture, for which Canberra is the only Australian venue. This is a touring exhibition from the National Portrait Gallery, London.
