Marilyn Monroe - The Complete Last Sitting Marilyn Monroe - The Complete Last Sitting
Schirmer-Mosel. Bert Stern's monumental tribute to Marilyn Monroe. Bert Stern, the famous American ad and fashion photographer of the sixties, was the last to have been granted a lengthy sitting with the star, six weeks before her death. During the course of the three-day sitting, which was arranged by Vogue and took place at the Los Angeles Bel-Air Hotel, nearly 2,700 shots were taken - fashion, portrait and nude studies - of which Vogue selected no more than twenty for publication. The result of these three days of work put in by the master photographer and the Hollywood actress, also the most gifted photo model of her day, were photographs that mark a climax in the history of star portrait, fashion and erotic photography. The photos project an indescribably sensuous and humane aura - an unparalleled photographic study, both qualitatively and quantitatively, of the woman and artist Marilyn Monroe at the apex of her competence and fame. "The Complete Last Sitting", which has been out of print for some time, is available once again in an unaltered new edition. Containing all the photographs taken at the sessions, it remains the greatest homage to Marilyn Monroe in book form. 464 pages, 2,571 colour and duotone plates, hardcover. NOW IN PRINT! Last published in 1982
