Treasures from Mercedes de Acosta’s Bequest – Marlene Dietrich

In today’s digital journey through the Treasures from Mercedes de Acosta’s bequest at the Rosenbach Museum and Library, instead of digging for more of the rather rare portraits of Mercedes de Acosta herself, we’ll focus on pictures taken by Mercedes ofMarlene Dietrich, captured in Mercedes’ snaphsots in a way neither paparazzi nor Hollywood’s glamor photographers ever could.

I don’t know about “butch”; but Marlene went her own way.
