CASTLE Galleries in Chester are to unveil a unique exhibition of previously unpublished Marilyn Monroe limited edition art, by world renowned photographer Eve Arnold.
The new photographic art collection, which is published by Washington Green Fine Art Publishing, is simply entitled Marilyn .
It features eight limited edition prints taken from photographs first captured by Eve Arnold when Marilyn Monroe was at the peak of her fame in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
With numerous accolades, tributes and awards to her name, Eve Arnold was recently honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Sony World Photography Awards this spring, just one day after her 98th birthday.
The eight prints portray one of the most famous women of the 20th century with six of the images capturing Monroe’s unguarded moments during the filming of The Misfits in 1960.
During their ten year collaboration Eve Arnold photographed Marilyn Monroe on six different occasions including a two month-long session while Monroe was shooting The Misfits.
Proclaimed by Vanity Fair to be the top photographer in the world, Eve Arnold’s career spanned much of the 20th century.
Also available is a beautiful 160 page art book which gives great insight into the career and personality of one of the world’s most beloved and infamous icons of all time.
