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 Beaton's 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 1920's and 30's.
