In collaboration with the Kobal Collection and the Film Society Lincoln Center, New York’s Big Eye Gallery is running an exhibition, titled The Golden Age, showcasing rarely seen photographs of Elizabeth Taylor. The photos of the iconic actress were taken by leading Hollywood photographers, including Virgil Apger, Floyd McCarty, Clarence Sinclair Bull, Bob Coburn, and Bob Penn.
“I fell in love with her at once. She was like a mirage of beauty of the ages, irresistible, like a pull of gravity. She has everything I want in a woman.”

"Imagine having Richard Burton’s voice in your ear while you are making love. It drowned out the troubles, the sorrows—everything just melted away."
- Elizabeth Taylor
“There is an emptiness in my life that only Elizabeth can make less empty. For 13 years we were together constantly, compulsively. How can you end such a wild and perfect relationship? You can’t. A love affair like ours is never ended – only temporarily abandoned.” Richard Burton

“I love her, not for her breasts, her buttocks, or her knees but for her mind. It is inscrutable. She is like a poem.” - Richard Burton on Elizabeth Taylor
