Win a Marilyn Monroe Fine Art Print!
TO CELEBRATE OUR MARILYN MONROE TIMELESS EXHIBITION, WE ARE OFFERING YOU THE CHANCE TO WIN A BEAUTIFUL LIMTED EDITION PRINT.
This outstanding, premium-quality, colour print, measuring 25 x 20in (63.5 x 51cm) comes from Marilyn’s historic photoshoot with celebrated photographer, Joseph Jasgur, and has been meticulously produced on Hahnemühle Photorag 308gsm fine art stock.
Marilyn, then a brunette named Norma Jeane Doughtery, first worked with Joseph Jasgur, in 1946, at the age of 19. She had no money, but Jasgur was impressed with her burning desire to become a model. He remembers: “She was just a plain ordinary girl with two sets of clothes - one she had on, one in the laundry.” However, Norma Jeane would transform into something magical, when Jasgur pointed his camera in her direction. Fascinated with his new discovery, he shot with her over a period of two weeks. This stunning portrait was captured at Zuma Beach, Malibu, in March, 1946. Famously, Norma Jeane used the images from this shoot in her promotion portfolio, which led to her first break in the industry.
This exclusive print, from a limited edition of only five hundred, has been registered on Hahnemühle’s Fine Art Registry using a unique certificate and hologram regime to protect its authenticity and exclusivity. The print also comes with its own certificate of authenticity.
