One of the most evocative and haunting photographic images ever of Marilyn, by famous celebrity lensman Richard Avedon, adorns this poster from the Richard Avedon Portraits exhibit at the Met from Sept. 2002-Jan. 2003. Photo shot on May 6, 1957 reveals the little-girl-lost quality of the former Norma Jean Baker as she matured as the sex symbol of the silver screen, her sad and confused eyes seemingly dreading the future -- a fear that would be borne out. Snow white background framing the stark b&w image has a movie-screen look about it. 30 x 40" poster is NRMT and worth it just for those eyes.
