    Description

    Greta Garbo Photo Portrait by Clarence Sinclair Bull. A beautiful b&w 11" x 14" photo portrait of a pensive Garbo, shot by the legendary photographer. Bull was head of the MGM stills department for more than 40 years and he took more than 4,000 photographs of Garbo from 1929 until the end of her career in 1941. He was Garbo's favorite photographer, and as her influence at MGM grew, she was eventually able to request that only Bull photograph her. The photo has Bull's credit stamp embossed on the lower right corner, 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.
