DESCRIPTION:  Hand signed & numbered C-Print, 1965 by Bert Stern. Produced for SASR Enterprises Inc. Bert Stern is an American fashion and celebrity portrait photographer. His best known work is arguably a collection of 2,500 photographs, some nude or semi-nude, taken of Marilyn Monroe over a three day period, six weeks before her death. As they were the last posed photographs taken of Monroe, the portfolio has come to be known as "The Last Sitting". The photographs were taken for Vogue, who published several of them following Monroe's death. A book containing these photographs, including copies of proofs over which Monroe had written comments, or crossed out with lipstick, was published in 1992 with the title Marilyn Monroe: The Complete Last Sitting. These are known as the Lost Sitting where Bert posed Marilyn to mock Jackie O. They were not discovered until 2000.
