$9,500

About

This piece is an original color photograph that was hand developed from the original negative by Bert Stern. This photo is part of The Last Sitting portfolio, taken six weeks before Marilyn Monroe’s death in 1962 and published in the 1970s. This sitting took place over three days at the Bel Air Hotel in Los Angeles and yielded over 2,500 images. Ten images were selected for the portfolio and printed in a limited edition of 250. The edition was broken up in half: 125 portfolios have a glossy finish and the other 125 portfolios have a matte finish, making a total 250 portfolios plus some artist proofs. The glossy pieces had to be numbered on the back, which is why you see a variation in the placement of the edition numbers. This piece is hand signed and numbered from the edition of 250 on the back and bears the 1962 Bert Stern/ Edward Weston copyright. The image measures 19 x 18.5 inches and the sheet measures 24 x 20 inches. The framed dimensions are 27.5 x 26 inches.
