Greta Garbo: The Many Faces of a Hollywood Queen

2016-09-15

For cinema lovers out there, you may be familiar with the name Greta Garbo. The Swedish-born American actress took the whole world by storm both during the Silent era and Sound era of Hollywood's Golden Age in her works such as "Flesh and the Devil (1927)", "Anna Christie (1930)", "Romance (1930)", "Mata Hari (1931)", "Grand Hotel (1932)" and "Camille (1936)".

Her transition from the former to the latter has proved her iconic status in acting, ranked among the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis, Audrey Hepburn and Ingrid Bergman.

Gander at her iconic beauty in "Garbo's Garbos: Portraits from her personal collection" at the Staley-Wise Gallery in New York, Sept. 16.
