National Portrait Gallery – The First Actresses

2011-11-19 @ 23:23:16

Stopped by the National Portrait Gallery to see The First Actresses exhibition which turned out to be filled with several absolutely lovely portraits! The exhibiton acted as a sort of continuation of their previous exhibit Glamour of the Gods – Hollywood Portraits, which was on earlier this year. As a compliment was also The Actress Now exhibition which showcases portraits of contemporary actresses from the Gallery’s Collection.

Ah the scandals and intrigue that these notorious female performers created whose lives outside of the theatre ranged from royal mistresses to admired writers and businesswomen. Joie de vivre!
