About

A striking pair of silver prints of Greta Garbo by photographer Clarence Sinclair Bull (1896-1979). Bull served as head of the stills department at Metro-Goldwyn Meyer and was almost the exclusive photographer of Greta Garbo from 1926 to 1941. The print on the left is from "Ninotchka" in 1939 and the print on the right is from "Camille" in 1936. Both are later prints. The silver prints can be purchased individually for $2,500 each.
