Linda McCartney – New Comprehensive Retrospective
The first comprehensive retrospective of Linda McCartney’s photographs is set to take place at Vienna’s Kunst Haus Wien between the 6th June and 6th October 2013. The exhibition is being produced by the museum in conjunction with Linda Enterprises Ltd.
The retrospective will cover the whole of Linda’s career taking in her documenting of the ‘swinging sixties’ musical scenes of New York, California and London where she photographed The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, The Who and Simon & Garfunkel. The exhibition will also include images from the tours of Wings and more intimate moments with her family in Sussex and Scotland.
In TASCHEN’s 2011 book ‘Linda McCartney: Life In Photographs’ Paul is quoted, “From the early days, I have very much admired her photography, and being able to experience it personally only added to my feelings of admiration. […] She was the easiest of photographers to be photographed by, and the relaxation of her subjects that she achieved is clearly visible in her work. I was always impressed by her impeccable timing. When you least expected it, the shutter would click and she had the shot. Her art took on new dimensions when she settled down to raise her family. […] On a personal level, she was fun-loving, intensely loyal and very protective of her family; her laconic sense of humour shone through in everything she did.”
