Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon at the National Portrait Gallery


Artist: Unknown Pinterest


See one of the great stars of Hollywood as never before with Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon at the National Portrait Gallery.

The exhibition marks 65 years since the film star, fashion icon and humanitarian performed at the West End night club Ciro's, in the place that is now the gallery's public archive. Although her time at the club is not widely known, it turned out to be a career changing part of her life.

This wide ranging exhibition charts the British actress's rise to fame, featuring iconic photographs alongside more intimate and obscure shots. The compelling images show how Hepburn progressed from her early days in Holland, becoming a dancer in the West End and then moving onto stage and screen fame as an icon of Hollywood.

Along with images of her taking part in philanthropic work towards the end of her life, this remarkable exhibition features work by some of the best photographers of the last century (including Cecil Beaton and Norman Parkinson) along with previously unseen photos from her family.
