Fifty years on from the decade that changed cultural history, the exhibition aims to celebrate a period of spontaneity and decadence, with collectibles capturing the glamour and hedonism of the era.

Selected for exhibition by Bailey himself, the historic portraits will be on sale at Bonhams' New Bond Street galleries in signed and authenticated limited editions.

His subjects included some of the most influential cultural figures of the past few decades: Yves Saint Laurent, Yoko Ono, David Lean, Francis Bacon and Salvador Dali, plus many more.
