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 beautifully with a small rip at the top right corner area and some editorial marks from publication in a newspaper. 90% of the examples of this image out there are reproductions or restrikes, with this one being original to 1952 and dated from 1953 on the back by a newspaper. One of her most famous studio sessions and a rare original in nice condition makes this a special offering! The photo has been encapsulated by PSA as a "Type 1."
