Provides the first substantial examination of the work of British artist Wilding (1893-1976), a highly successful studio photographer who developed a distinctive, idealized mode of portraiture in the 1930s and 40s in the course of producing numerous portraits of the British royal family and such celebrities as Aldous Huxley, Tallulah Bankhead and Noel Coward. Full-page reproductions of some 75 photographs are prefaced by an essay discussing Wilding's life, the history of her commercial studios, and her techniques and primary commissions.
