Description

Stunning Monroe portrait presented to her wardrobe assistant, "Thanks for holding my belly in—But lets leave my fanny out"

Vintage matte-finish 10.75 x 13.75 photo of Monroe reclining on a pillow and wearing a low-cut dress and diamond jewelry, a pose from circa 1953, signed and inscribed in blue ballpoint, "To Ann—Thanks for holding my belly in—But lets leave my fanny out, Marilyn Monroe.” In very good to fine condition, with trimmed edges, creasing to the upper and lower left corners, overall irregular silvering, and three file holes to the left edge, which could be matted out. An exquisite oversized portrait of Marilyn made all the more desirable by its wonderfully 'cheeky' inscription.
