A wonderfully playful black and white silver gelatin print of Marilyn Monroe, in the bathtub, taken by Andre de Dienes in 1953.
The image has been meticulously hand-printed by de Dienes on double-weight paper and hand stamped by the photographer on verso. The work is also accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from OneWest Publishing.This beautiful image was originally captured at the Bel Air Hotel in Los Angeles during 1953. De Dienes recalls: 'She (Marilyn) was in a naughty mood, in the bath, teasing me...'
Andre De Dienes (1913-1985) came to the United States from Hungary in 1938. He settled in California and quickly made a speciality of plein-air photography of the female nude form.
