    Description

    Greta Garbo Photo Portrait by Clarence Sinclair Bull. A fantastic b&w 11" x 14" photo portrait of Garbo, shot by legendary Hollywood photographer Clarence Sinclair Bull. Head of the MGM stills department for more than 40 years, Bull took more than 4,000 photographs of Garbo from 1929 until her retirement from acting in 1941. Garbo's favorite photographer (she disliked George Hurrell's manic personality), she used her influence at MGM to request him as her exclusive photographer. The photo has Bull's credit stamp embossed on the lower right corner, is numbered "2/99" in pencil in the lower left, and is in Very Fine condition with some mild wrinkling. From the Edward Weston Collection.
