Lot description
Marilyn in Fur - "The Lost Sitting"
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 hazy Marilyn Monroe with a beaver fur hat and scarf, staring longingly into the camera.

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.

Please inquire for more detail images.

NOTE: the detail image of the edition number is for another print from the same edition, not the one for sale. This work is from the same edition.
