About the Book

Sir Cecil Beaton (1904 –1980) was an English fashion, portrait and war photographer, painter, diarist and Academy Award–winning stage and costume designer.

Beaton’s sixth and final volume covers 1963-74. It follows Beaton’s encounters with the youth of the swinging sixties but also the parting of many of his lifelong friends.

In Marrakesh he meets Mick Jagger and in England David Hockney comes to stay. There are many vivid and affectionate portraits: Garbo in Greece, as bewitching as ever; Philippe and Pauline de Rothschild in their little principality at Mouton; Picasso, rather shrivelled but full of vitality and hope; Diana Cooper defying the passing years with indomitable energy.

The Parting Years is the sixth volume of Cecil Beaton’s Diaries, a personal memoir of the twentieth century, covering famous artists and photographers, political figures, socialites, the rich & famous and movie stars.
