    Description

    Greta Garbo Photo Portrait by Clarence Sinclair Bull. This gorgeous b&w 11" x 14" photo portrait of screen siren Greta Garbo was shot by legendary photographer Clarence Sinclair Bull during his 40-year tenure as head of the MGM stills department. Bull took more than 4,000 photographs of Garbo from 1929-1941; he was Garbo's favorite photographer, and her influence as a megastar at MGM allowed her 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 on the lower left, and is in Very Fine condition with some minor wrinkling, not affecting the image. Original photo from original camera negatives. From the Edward Weston Collection.
