Madame Yevonde established a studio in 1914 at 92 Victoria Street, London using her first name as the name of the business. She had a strong sense of the theatrical and was one of the first to master color photography for portraits. Her style evolved from traditional portraits of the famous (A.A. Milne, Barbara Cartland, Diana Mitford, Louis Mountbatten and Noel Coward) to highly stylized and slightly surreal images in the 1930s when she used the Vixex color process to photograph society ladies in roles from classical mythology.
