Beaton's career spanned about 50 years, but his fashion photographs of the 30s remain some of his best-known pieces. Portraits of Salvador Dali, Elsa Schiaparelli, Marlene Dietrich and Katharine Hepburn often steal the spotlight. One piece to look out for will be the rare 1935 colour photograph of Mary Taylor, as well as images from Beaton's Gatsby-esque parties, hosted at his home in Aschcomb.
