This is the first publi­ca­ti­on on Ame­ri­can artist Cur­tis Moffat who is known for his dyna­mic abs­tract pho­to­graphs, inno­va­ti­ve color still lifes and some of the most glamo­rous socie­ty por­traits of the ear­ly twen­tieth cen­tu­ry. Moffat was also a pivo­tal figu­re in Moder­nist inte­ri­or design and fur­ni­tu­re. Living in Lon­don throug­hout the 1920s and ear­ly ‘30s during the era of the “Bright Young Things,” Moffat pro­du­ced stylish pho­to­gra­phic por­traits of lea­ding fi gures in high socie­ty, sta­ge, thea­ter and the arts, inclu­ding Cecil Bea­ton, The Sit­wells, Nan­cy Cunard, Lady Dia­na Cooper, Tal­lu­lah Bankhead and Daph­ne Du Maurier.

In 2003 and 2007, Moffat’s daugh­ter, Pene­lo­pe Smail, generous­ly­do­na­ted his exten­si­ve archi­ve to the Vic­to­ria and Albert Muse­um. This book is drawn from that archi­ve and also inclu­des digi­tal recon­struc­tions of color images from ori­gi­nal tri-car­bro pro­cess black-and-white nega­ti­ves. It reveals Moffat’s pionee­ring yet litt­le-known pho­to­gra­phy in all its dep­th and beauty.
