She made no pub­lic appear­ances and assid­u­ous­ly tried to avoid the pub­lic­i­ty she loathed. As she had been dur­ing her Hol­ly­wood years, Gar­bo, with her innate need for soli­tude, was often reclu­sive.

Emily Eliz­a­beth Dick­in­son (Decem­ber 10, 1830 – May 15, 1886) was an Amer­i­can poet. Although part of a promi­nent fam­i­ly with strong ties to its com­mu­ni­ty, Dick­in­son lived much of her life in reclu­sive iso­la­tion. Con­sid­ered an eccen­tric by locals, she devel­oped a not­ed pen­chant for white cloth­ing and became known for her reluc­tance to greet guests or, lat­er in life, to even leave her bed­room. Dick­in­son nev­er mar­ried, and most friend­ships between her and oth­ers depend­ed entire­ly upon cor­re­spon­dence. Dick­in­son was a recluse for the lat­er years of her life.

Edvard Munch (12 Decem­ber 1863 – 23 Jan­u­ary 1944) was a Nor­we­gian painter and print­mak­er whose intense­ly evoca­tive treat­ment of psy­cho­log­i­cal themes built upon some of the main tenets of late 19th-cen­tu­ry Sym­bol­ism and great­ly influ­enced Ger­man Expres­sion­ism in the ear­ly 20th cen­tu­ry. His best known work is The Scream, paint­ed in 1893. Dur­ing the last thir­ty five years of his life, Munch lived in Nor­way, becom­ing a recluse, avoid­ing human con­tact and devot­ing him­self to his work.
