Box of Pin-ups by David Bailey

You could readily make a case that London in the 60s was the coolest place to be…ever. Mick & Keith, Paul & John, Mary Quant, Twiggy…Blow Up. There is arguably no parallel.

Sotheby’s London will be capturing all that wild spirit as part of a landmark auction, Made in Britain, taking place April 5. All of the decade’s provocative style and outre glamour is captured in classic photographs by the likes of David Bailey, Terence Donovan and Bert Stern – from Julie Christie to Marianne Faithfull to the notorious Kray Twins.

A pre-sale exhibition will take place March 31 – April 4; and on the 2nd, the Sunday at Sotheby’s: Gallery Talks will focus on the show.

Groovy, baby.
