About the work
Twenty-five year old Elizabeth Taylor on the set of "Suddenly Last Summer" in London, 1959 by Burt Glinn. Fine art giclée print on acid-free 100% cotton paper, brown wooden frame. 150-piece edition. Authenticated. Measurements of photographic print only: 25,5 x 20,5 cm. Twenty-five-year-old Elizabeth Taylor on the set of "Suddenly Last Summer", in which she co-stars with Katharine Hepburn and Montgomery Clift. It is Taylor's first film after the death of her 3rd husband, Mike Todd, in a plane crash. Just months after Todd's death, Taylor married Eddie Fisher and found herself at the centre of a scandal. It was a place that would become familiar for her, though never comfortable, for the next 30 years.
