Patrick Lichfield: Nudes from 24 April – 26 May 2012.
Patrick Lichfield (1939-2005) was an internationally renowned photographer who worked for all the major magazines, exhibited worldwide, and published several books during his career. The National Portrait Gallery dedicated a retrospective exhibition to the first twenty years of his work in 2002.
His great break was when he was summoned by Diana Vreeland, the doyenne of fashion editors, to photograph the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, and given a five year contract with American Vogue. In 1981 he was appointed official photographer at the wedding of his cousin, The Prince of Wales, and Lady Diana Spencer.
He is lesser known for his nude work which will be exhibited for the first time.
