Significant Marilyn Monroe Topless Photograph by Bert Stern

Significant Marilyn Monroe Topless Photograph by Bert Stern

"...And it seems to me you lived your life like a candle in the wind, never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in." In that lyric Elton John captured part of the essence of Marilyn in a song dedicated to her memory. Marilyn Monroe remains an icon of America many years after her untimely death. Maybe it?s because of her early demise that she has attained immortality. We?ll never know for sure. What we do know is that photos of Marilyn have affected more men around the world than perhaps those of any other woman in history. This now famous photo was shot by Bert Stern only six weeks before her death. The three session shoot by Stern was commissioned by Vogue Magazine and produced some of the most timeless images of Marilyn. So relevant was this encounter that a photograph from that very meeting was featured on the cover of Playboy Magazine as recently as December of 2000. This print features an authentic Stern signature and measures 20x20?. Framed to 28x28". NRMT.
