Elizabeth Taylor took this pic as a gift for her third husband Michael Todd. A friend, actor and photographer Roddy McDowell persuaded her to pose nude by promising her it would be done tastefully. She then gave the picture to Todd as a gift after he proposed in 1956. After his death, 13 months after their wedding, it’s said Taylor gave the picture to her assistant and make-up artist Penny Taylor. It was later purchased by private collector Jim Shaudis 1980 who made in available for viewing after her passing.
