Item 351 - Marilyn Monroe Catalog 407 (Apr 2013)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $900.00
Sold Price: $11,732.40 (includes buyer's premium)


Vintage glossy 7.25 x 9.5 photo of Marilyn wrapped in white fur and a string of pearls around her neck, taken by Frank Powolny, signed and inscribed in green fountain pen “To Cheryl, Love & kisses, Marilyn Monroe.” Slightly trimmed edges, a noticeable central horizontal crease, scattered light surface marks and creases, a staple hole near each corner, and some irregular ink adhesion to signature and inscription (which are both a few shades light, but still completely legible), otherwise very good condition. This image, taken by Powolny in 1953, captures Marilyn in all her exquisite charm and beauty, the exact opposite of the adorable ‘dumb blond’ persona she had taken on at the time in such films as Gentlemen Prefer Blonds and How to Marry a Millionaire. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
