MARILYN MONROE PHOTOGRAPH
A vintage print black and white photograph of Marilyn Monroe wearing an oversized white straw hat adorned with roses. Shot by Carl Perutz, this piece has three of his 'credit' stamp marks on the verso (all with different NYC addresses and old-style telephone numbers like 'CIrcle 6-1373') plus his blue fountain pen ink annotation reading "Miss Marlyn [sic] Monroe/New York 1958." Marilyn must have liked the results of their session together; Perutz's copy of a 1958 invoice sent to Mrs. Arthur Miller at 444 East 57th Street/New York, N.Y. is included and indicates the star ordered six prints from him for a total of $61.80.
15 x 13 inches
Please note this piece has been linen-backed.
