BERT STERN SIGNED: MARILYN MONROE IN TOGA.

ESTIMATE: 1750-2250 POUNDS. Marilyn Monroe in Toga. Signed by the world famous photographer Bert Stern 1929-2013. Bert Signed Marilyn in red crayon, and signed his signature along the bottom of the image. Edition 30/36. Copyright stamped by Bert Stern on the back. Professionally mounted and framed in Gallery white wood, with gloss coating. Glassed on the back so the stamp can be seen. Supplied with Bert Stern's coa. Supplied with a letter from Bert's personal assistant. Professional achive matte photo paper: 11.5x16 inches. Image: 10.25x15.25 inches. In June 1962, photographer Bert Stern shot a series of photos of Marilyn Monroe at the Hotel Bel-Air that have collectively come to be known as “The Last Sitting.” Taken over 3 days. Marilyn in Toga was taken on the last day of shooting. These images are arguably the most famous images ever captured of America’s most famous actress. The photos endure partly as artifacts—as the last visible evidence of the living woman (a legacy reinforced by Stern’s decision to publish the contact sheets Monroe herself had crossed out in marker). But the pictures are also remarkable for the raw truths they seem to reveal. In them, we see an actress whose comedic talents were overshadowed by her sex appeal, and a woman who is cannily aware of her pinup status. In many shots.Stern excavated and preserved the poignant humanity of the real woman—beautiful, but also fragile, needy, flawed—from the monumental sex symbol. In our armoured, airbrushed age, his achievement feels almost revolutionary. Condition: Museum quality. Fine.Read more
