THE LAST SITTING: MARILYN MONROE
On a late June afternoon in 1962, Marilyn Monroe arrived at the Hotel Bel-Air. Alone. Late. Ready to remove her makeup, clothing, and inhibitions for the camera of legendary photographer Bert Stern. The 3 day photo shoot that ensued, yielded nothing short of magic. The series of 2,571 portraits revealed a Woman both shockingly unvarnished and utterly glamorous.
Six weeks later Marilyn Monroe was dead.
The intimate portraits would be the public’s final glimpse into the life of the Hollywood icon.
