Orisons has acquired three extremely rare Bert Stern photos of Marilyn Monroe. Taken 6 weeks prior to her death, these are from Monroe’s final photo shoot commissioned in June 1962 by Vogue Magazine. All three were originally published in Stern’s 1982 book. Signed and numbered, each is 199/250, with certificates. The plates used to print these were donated to a museum and will never be printed from again. During the photo exhibit, these will be on display and for purchase.
