EXCEPTIONAL 1950's Original Photo MARILYN MONROE Working Out by ANDRE de DIENES. 8" x 10" Antique Gelatin-Silver. MARILYN by Andre de Dienes.
An INCREDIBLE, Vintage 1950's Original Photograph of Marilyn Monroe as captured by renowned Hungarian-American photographer Andre de Dienes. Born in Transylvania in Austria-Hungary, de Dienes worked for many prestigious organizations including the Associated Press, Esquire, Vogue and Life magazines. In the mid-forties Dienes met the nineteen-year-old Marilyn Monroe (then called Norma Jeane Baker) who was a model on the books of Emmeline Snivelys Blue Book Model Agency. He became one of the first photographers to shoot the girl who would become the most famous woman of the 20th Century. The two would collaborate on several photo shoots until their last in 1961.
The offered photograph is an absolute GEM and is from one of Dienes most famous shoots with Marilyn. It was captured in 1953 at the Bel Air Hotel while Marilyn was posing for Dienes in various workout poses. And best of all, the offered photo is a period doubleweight TYPE I original from Dienes that was made in the 1950's by his own hands! Unlike many of the later-issued restrikes that are made on newer paper, our offered exemplar is a true "vintage" 1950's specimen and has several credit stamps used by Dienes over the years including the 1950's style stamping (note that there are a plethora of worthless fakes of Dienes' Marilyn photos on the internet).
Our photo is in outstanding excellent condition and boasts striking contrast and crisp clarity. Simply put, this is a world-class Marilyn Monroe photograph. Thanks in advance for your professional courtesy and cooperation. "Please allow time for images to load".
