— Cornel Lucas R.I.P

A few years ago, The English Group had the truly wonderful pleasure of working with Cornel Lucas (and the UK’s National Portrait Gallery) over a period of months to produce a Limited Edition book showcasing Cornel’s life’s work in photographing movie stars – along with stars of ballet, literature and theatre – and so it is with great sadness that I awaken to discover that he passed away on the 8th November at the grand age of 92.

Cornel (shown here photographing his first wife, the actress Belinda Lee) was a truly wonderful individual and I spent many many hours with him capturing his memories for the book and will honour him here in more detail later today.


We do have just a few copies of the book available – which you can see here – both the single volume edition signed by Cornel Lucas and the great cinematographer Jack Cardiff (who also passed away this year), and a Deluxe Limited Edition two volume version of the book which is also signed by Lord Puttnam.


If you would like a copy of either of these editions, do email me at marc@theenglishgroup.co.uk
