About this deal

It is a unique affirmation of the erotic dimension of photography and the eroticism of taking photos, and it is the world's finest and largest tribute to Marilyn Monroe. She is visibly checked out in a lot of them, which just makes it impossible to ignore what was going on.

Top-Star unter den amerikanischen Mode- und Werbephotographen der 60er Jahre, war der letzte, dem Marilyn, sechs Wochen vor ihrem Tod, einen Phototermin bewilligte. I also have lots of contempt for Stern for having published the photographs that Marilyn didn't approve of and had marked up. The three-day session yielded nearly 2,600 pictures-fashion, portrait, and nude studies-of indescribable sensual and human vibrancy, of which no more than 20 were published. The three-day session yielded nearly 2,600 pictures--fashion, portrait, and nude studies--of indescribable sensual and human vibrancy, of which no more than 20 were published. Notable exhibitions of his work include “I Wanna Be Loved By You: Photographs of Marilyn Monroe” shown at the Brooklyn Museum of Art and “The Last Sitting” at the Musée Maillol in Paris.Short openings beginning at top and bottom of hinges due to the weight of this large and most impressive tome. He emerged alongside Richard Avedon, Mark Shaw, and Irving Penn as a pioneer of this new, confrontational style.

Slipcase Condition: Good, pictorial covers, foot of spine torn, top edge age-toned, age-toned extremities, bumped edges, rubbed covers, lightly chipped corners.Bert Stern looks back on that momentous sitting, offering a revealing, naked portrait of Marilyn the person -- of a vulnerable, confused woman who although at the apex of her career, had relinquished control of her life -- and of the fashion world of the early 1960s, with its new openness towards drugs, sex, and art. The fact this was later released again as "The Complete Last Sitting", presumably with even more photos she didn't wan the world to see.

The monumental body of work by the master photographer and the Hollywood actress marks a climax in the history of star photography, both in quantity and quality. In 2008 Stern shot recreations of the images used by Vogue—with actress Lindsay Lohan as the model—for the February 25, 2008 issue of New York. The Russian figure skater will be stripped of any titles, awards, and prizes earned after her positive sample was collected, including Olympic medals.The book included many of the over 2,500 images that Stern had shot, including contact sheets with images Monroe had disliked and crossed out.

The three-day session, which was arranged by Vogue and took place at the Los Angeles Bel Air Hotel, yielded nearly 2600 pictures - fashion, portrait and nude studies - of indescribable sensual and human vibrancy. Complete set of nearly 2700 photos taken in three days by Bert Stein,just six weeks before Marilyn Monroe's death in August 1962. A new, more mature Marilyn had emerged and with a halo of light around her each photograph explores the moods and intimacy of a woman loved by the world still unforgettable nearly 50 years later.Change country: -Select- Afghanistan Albania Algeria American Samoa Andorra Angola Anguilla Antigua and Barbuda Argentina Armenia Aruba Australia Austria Azerbaijan Republic Bahamas Bahrain Bangladesh Belarus Belgium Belize Benin Bermuda Bhutan Bolivia Bosnia and Herzegovina Botswana Brazil British Virgin Islands Brunei Darussalam Bulgaria Burkina Faso Burundi Cambodia Cameroon Canada Cape Verde Islands Cayman Islands Central African Republic Chad Chile China Colombia Comoros Cook Islands Costa Rica Cyprus Czech Republic Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) Democratic Republic of the Congo Denmark Djibouti Dominica Dominican Republic Ecuador Egypt El Salvador Equatorial Guinea Eritrea Estonia Ethiopia Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas) Fiji Finland France Gabon Republic Gambia Georgia Germany Ghana Gibraltar Greece Greenland Grenada Guam Guatemala Guernsey Guinea Guinea-Bissau Guyana Haiti Honduras Hong Kong Hungary Iceland India Indonesia Iraq Ireland Italy Jamaica Japan Jersey Jordan Kazakhstan Kenya Kiribati Kuwait Kyrgyzstan Laos Latvia Lebanon Lesotho Liberia Liechtenstein Lithuania Luxembourg Macau Macedonia Madagascar Malawi Malaysia Maldives Mali Malta Marshall Islands Mauritania Mauritius Mayotte Mexico Micronesia Moldova Monaco Mongolia Montenegro Montserrat Morocco Mozambique Namibia Nauru Nepal Netherlands Netherlands Antilles New Zealand Nicaragua Niger Nigeria Niue Norway Oman Pakistan Palau Panama Papua New Guinea Paraguay Peru Philippines Poland Portugal Puerto Rico Qatar Republic of Croatia Republic of the Congo Romania Rwanda Saint Helena Saint Kitts-Nevis Saint Lucia Saint Pierre and Miquelon Saint Vincent and the Grenadines San Marino Saudi Arabia Senegal Serbia Seychelles Sierra Leone Singapore Slovakia Slovenia Solomon Islands Somalia South Africa South Korea Spain Sri Lanka Suriname Swaziland Sweden Switzerland Taiwan Tajikistan Tanzania Thailand Togo Tonga Trinidad and Tobago Tunisia Turkey Turkmenistan Turks and Caicos Islands Tuvalu Uganda United Arab Emirates United Kingdom United States Uruguay Uzbekistan Vanuatu Vatican City State Vietnam Virgin Islands (U. Die Lust am Spiel mit sich selbst in immer wieder neuen Rollen bleibt trotz mancher ernster Momente durchgängig spürbar, und so entstand zugleich ein einmaliges Dokument über die Erotik des Photographierens. A poor condition book can still make a good reading copy but is generally not collectible unless the item is very scarce. The photos are featured alongside DS car models, including a rare, bright-red DS 21 Cabriolet from 1966.
