Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe

The works of 7 Photographers celebrating Marilyn Monroe’s June Birthday are being featured at Pop International Galleries. They include the very early works by Andre de Dienes which are some of my favorites all the way up to what I believe are the very last taken by George Barris  just two weeks before her death. In addition there are some Warhol and Peters Mars pieces due to her iconic Pop Art star status.

While discussing the Dienes works with one of the Art Consultants Alexandra,  I shared how I believed that Marilyn in her photos made you not only desire her, but also I’ve always felt looking at her pictures that you want to protect her as well. She was simultaneously oozing sensuality and vulnerability with as Alexis noted maybe just a bit of danger in her eyes as well…

Pop International Galleries is located at 473 West Broadway
