THE MCCARTNEY ERA: Speaking of Stella McCartney, the clan was out in force on Monday night in London for a private view of archive photographs by the late Linda McCartney at Phillips de Pury & Co. Sir Paul, Stella and Mary McCartney greeted guests including Sam Taylor-Wood, Luella Bartley, Lily Cole, Sir Peter Blake — who designed the “Sgt. Pepper’s” album cover — and Tracey Emin. The show, which runs until June 16, features shots of the family in the Scottish countryside, and portraits of the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones and Mick Jagger. The 26 images are taken from an archive of 200,000, and the gallery is selling limited edition prints. Linda McCartney died in 1998.
“I’ve used these photographs for years as inspiration — not literally — but their spirit,” said Stella McCartney. “I know them so well, and I’m glad other people can see them, too. I really wanted my mother to have a moment again — it’s been a while.”
McCartney said one of her favorites is a shot of a whiskey bottle standing next to a baby’s bottle. It was the Seventies, after all. “I love the humor and the irony,” she said.
