Description: Shakespeare by Mc Bean collects 300 images, many never before published, taken by the renowned photographer Angus Mc Bean. Incorporating images from every one of Shakespeare's plays performed at the RSC, with some from the Old Vic, between the years 1945-62, it is a veritable who's who of the British stage. Richard Burton, Vivien Leigh, Robert Donat, Alec Guiness, Michael Redgrave, Peggy Ashcroft, Laurence Olivier, Edith Evans, Paul Scofield, Diana Rigg, Anthony Quayle, Charles Laughton, John Gielgud, Peter O' Toole and Dorothy Tutin are just some of the names that appear. Angus Mc Bean was an exceptional talent, whether he was transforming the photography of rehearsals, inspiring the Beatles, or entertaining his admireres with his light-hearted espousal of surrealism in portraiture. In a career lasting half a century his influence can be seen in everything from advertising to pop culture. Waterstones Shakespeare by Mcbean - shop the best deal online on thebookbug.co.uk
