Greta Garbo by Cecil Beaton






How lovely are these 1946 images of Greta Garbo snapped by Cecil Beaton? The British photographer was infatuated with the Swedish silver screen icon and it is believed they had a love affair. Greta was dismayed when Beaton published his diaries (naturally, as she was in them…) and the two had a falling out. Many years later Beaton suffered a stroke prompting them to reunite in 1974 for one final visit.

P.S. I knew I recognized that window treatment! I’ve been coveting this print for some time.
