Heavenly Hollywood Portraits

Louise Brooks (1929) by Eugene Robert Richee

Glamour of the Gods is an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, London. It is Hollywood portraiture from the industry's 'Golden Age', the period 1920 to 1960. From Greta Garbo and Clark Gable to Audrey Hepburn, James Dean and Marilyn Monroe. If I have to pick a favourite it's Louise Brooks above.

  1. Unquestionably worthy of the word Glamour. Lasting appeal, eternal mystery. Your favorite, taken in 1929, looks as if it could have been taken today. A nod to some of the classic style that came from that decade.
