Decorating a house is hard! We’ve been hanging up pictures that we already own, but it is disappointing when your taste changes and you don’t really have money to invest in artwork. I know that one of my boyfriend’s favorite pictures is the one above of Marilyn Monroe, which is for sale from the Staley Wise Gallery in NYC. This photo is one of over 2,500 that were taken in 1962, six weeks before Marilyn died. The orange comes from markings that were made on the contact sheet, and although all of the photos are beautiful, it is this group with markings that we like best. The photographer, Bert Stern, combined the photos into a book called “Marilyn Monroe: The Complete Last Sitting”, which is available from Amazon. Because of the picture’s five figure price tag, we will have to keep this artwork on our wish list for now….
