David Bailey’s Classic Snaps Make the Scene at Bonhams, London
He practically invented Swinging London, married Catherine Deneuve and inspired the movie Blow Up all before his 30th birthday. Few figures personify the coolest scenes of the ’60s like British photographer David Bailey. Fitting then that UK auction house Bonhams is celebrating the hippest decade’s 50th anniversary with a blowout Bailey exhibition and sale at its London digs in New Bond Street. The Pure Sixties. Pure Bailey show will be on display there in March, featuring a heady brew of icons from the worlds of music, fashion, literature, design and cinema: Brigitte Bardot, Andy Warhol, The Beatles, David Hockney, Roger Vadim and Raquel Welch, to name a few. The perfect opportunity to add to your collection. Our pick? This killer Michael Caine portrait, priced at a cool £50,000.
