DAME EDITH SITWELL Poet vintage CECIL BEATON photograph, possibly original

DAME EDITH SITWELL Poet vintage CECIL BEATON photograph, possibly original

We offer an 8″ x 10″ vintage matte photograph of the famed Cecil Beaton photograph of the legendary Society maven and poet Dame Edith Sitwell. The photograph appears to be an original photograph from the negative, but is not blind stamped by Beaton. In my experience, the Beaton images we have worked with have generally been blind stamped and some signed. We are not pricing it as a lifetime original Beaton, though it very well may be. Dame Edith Louisa Sitwell, DBE (1887 1964) was a British poet and critic and the eldest of the three literary Sitwells. She reacted badly to her eccentric, unloving parents and lived much of her life with her governess. She never married but became passionately attached to Russian painter Pavel Tchelitchew, and her home was always open to London’s poetic circle, to whom she was generous and helpful. Sitwell published poetry continuously from 1913, some of it abstract and set to music. With her dramatic style and exotic costumes, she was sometimes labeled a poseur, but her work was praised for its solid technique and painstaking craftsmanship. She was a recipient of the Benson Medal. The item “DAME EDITH SITWELL Poet vintage CECIL BEATON photograph, possibly original” is in sale since Friday, May 22, 2020.
