Description


Sultry vintage matte-finish 7.5 x 9.5 portrait of Monroe taken during a Frank Powolny glamour shoot in 1953, signed and inscribed in white ink, “To Jimmie, Best regards, Marilyn Monroe.” In fine condition, with scattered surface creases and a moderate crease to the lower left corner. Monroe and Powolny most famously teamed up in 1953 for a series of stunning, artfully framed publicity stills for the 1953 film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Immortalized for his classic World War II pinup of Betty Grable, Powolny remained a trusted photographer for Monroe throughout her career, and is noted as taking the last known still photographs of the starlet during production of Something's Got to Give, one week before her death in 1962. A gorgeous image elevated by the contrast of Monroe’s white signature and the deepness of the unlit background. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
