A deftly rendered luminous pastel portrait of silent and early talkie legendary Hollywood film star Greta Garbo, created as the cover for the November 1935 issue of Screenland magazine. The artist captures the glamorous side of Garbo as styled from a publicity shoot promoting her starring turn in the M-G-M adaptation of Tolstoy's Anna Karenina. One of the most spectacular examples of cover portraiture we have have had the fortune to offer by Charles Gates Sheldon; one of the leading creators of stylized glamorous art deco Hollywood film star portraits for virtually all the leading jazz age movie magazine titles.
