Garbo’s Garbos, Portraits From Her Collection

Throughout the month of October I will be featuring articles and links brought to you by Getty Images. Working at Getty Images, I am fortunate to be regularly exposed to the best in world photography, both past and present and the cutting edge of the visual dialogue that frames our lives. I hope you enjoy.

Still photographs, and especially portraits, were of great importance to a movie career in the early days of film. Garbo kept these photographs throughout her life and passed them on to her family. (via L’Oeil de la Photo)

Garbo’s Garbos, Portraits From Her Collection

Greta Garbo was the undisputed queen of Hollywood from the mid-1920’s through the 1930’s. The combination of her extraordinary beauty and brilliant acting ability elevated her to international stardom from the beginning of her career while she was still in her early 20’s and newly arrived from Sweden.
