Large 1952 seductive studio photograph of the ultimate sex-symbol Marilyn Monroe. Taken as her career really started to take off, this was part of a sitting for her upcoming film "Monkey Business" and done by noted photographer Frank Powolny. Bold and beautiful, this is a completely vintage studio photo that dates to 1952 and presents really well despite some condition issued from repeated news-room handling and editorial use. One of her most famous studio sessions and a rare original that is being offered here for the first time ever, fresh out of a newspaper archive. This will get a Type 1 from PSA as well with the studio stamp on the reverse.
