Angus McBean Sale

If you’ve got a spare few quid why not buy some Angus McBean memorabilia? Lacy Scott & Knight are auctioning off not only photographs by the great Welsh surrealist snapper but props and Christmas cards. Also for sale is his studio visitor book containing the signatures of stars such as Marlene Dietrich, Katherine Hepburn and the Beatles. Laurence Olivier comments in the book that McBean’s “rice puddings are excellent”. The lot has been offered up for auction by David Ball who was McBean’s partner and studio assistant. The sale will be taking place on Friday, April 12, 2013, at 12PM.

*The above picture is an Angus McBean self-portrait Christmas card from 1946.
