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.
