Lot description
Marilyn as Jacqueline Kennedy - "The Lost Sitting"
edition of 50 + 6 AP
paper size - 30" x 30"
image size - 25" x 25"

This image derives from a collection of 19 transparencies that have been missing since 1962, and were originally part of Mr. Stern's infamous "Last Sitting." This image is one of 9 limited edition prints now know as "The Lost Sitting." The photographs were taken at Marilyn's last photographic session with Bert Stern in 1962 for Vogue. It was believed that the transparencies were lost forever, until recently, and strictly by chance; they have recently been discovered, recovered and restored.

This photograph features a demure Marilyn Monroe with a black wig posing as Jacqueline Kennedy, a tongue in cheek nod to the First lady.

The prints are of a limited edition of 50, of which only 25 have been produced to date.
An entire limited edition portfolio of all 9 prints of "The Lost Sitting" is now part of the permanent collection at The Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University.

All prints are signed and numbered by Bert Stern and have a copyright stamp on the verso. The portfolio is accompanied with a certificate of authenticity.
