BEATON, CECIL. Electa Editrice Portfolios, Milan: Gruppo Editoriale Electa Milano, 1981. Large folio, No. 46 of an edition of 1,000, 12 gravures including the print on the cover, with original folder.

The subjects are Marilyn Monroe, Buster Keaton, Rudolf Nureyev, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Pablo Picasso, Frank Sinatra, Gary Cooper, Marlon Brando, Audrey Hepburn, Edith Sitwell and John Weissmuller.
