I believe this was produced by Bert Stern himself! Here she is looking absolutely stunning in her famous Pink scarf sitting with Bert Stern. Color gelatin silver or chromogenic. Bert Stern's stamp on back. Produced from the original negative in the 70's for press purposes.Very difficult to find this one from the original negative and produced most likely by the photographer himself and definitely during the lifetime of the photographer. I guess "met" is an exaggeration. Stern had seen her once at a Manhattan cocktail party. He recalls, I just glanced at her. She was under a light with a lot of guys around. I didn't have the courage to go and talk to her. I just noticed that she was startling. 1962: The year all of Bert's dreams came true. He proposed shooting Marilyn for Vogue, and Vogue said.
March, 1962: Vogue arranges a shoot in Los Angeles and Bert does presumably what any man would do had they been allowed an intimate day and night with Marilyn Monroe. He had reserved them a suite at the Bel-Air Hotel; for the art of photography, of course. Although Bert later writes, "making love and making photographs were closely connected in my mind when it came to women, " which makes me question how appropriate this "professional" day actually was. Oh, to be a fly on the wall. Early June, 1962: The first shoot, aka, the scarf shoot.
Late June, 1962: The second shoot was requested by Vogue. Alexander Liberman, Vogue's picture editor, loved the scarf photos, but requested Bert do more black and whites to better suit the magazine. He arranges a new session... Again at the Bel-Air, this time at the larger Bungalow Number 96. August 5, 1962: Marilyn Monroe was found dead of an apparent barbiturate overdose.
I put that in quotes because there is plenty of controversy about how she died. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Photographic Images\Photographs". The seller is "grays-8805" and is located in this country: US.This item can be shipped worldwide.
