Marilyn porte aussi des étoles en fourrure blanche lors de ses sorties médiatiques (gala, premières de films, remises de prix); mais elle ne pose plus en portraits typiques glamour en studio avec une étole blanche. Ce type de portraits représentant le glamour hollywoodien semble ne plus intéresser Marilyn. Elle travaille avec des photographes qu'elle sélectionne et qui renvoie une image plus naturelle d'elle: Milton Greene, Sam Shaw, Richard Avedon, Philippe Halsman, Earl Gustie, Eve Arnold, Douglas Kirkland et Bert Stern sont les photographes qui la prendront en studio de 1956 à 1962 et ne travaillant non plus pour les studios de cinéma, mais pour la presse (à travers les agences de presse ou des contrats publicitaires signés avec des magazines). Sans doute par ce choix, Marilyn semble signifier vouloir s'éloigner du diktat des studios et gagner en indépendance pour mieux contrôler son image véhiculée dans les médias.
Marilyn also wears white fur stoles during her media outings (gala, film premieres, awards ceremony); but she no longer poses in typical glamorous studio portraits with a white stole. This type of portrait representing Hollywood glamor seems no longer interests Marilyn. She works with photographers that she selects and who gives a more natural image of her: Milton Greene, Sam Shaw, Richard Avedon, Philippe Halsman, Earl Gustie, Eve Arnold, Douglas Kirkland and Bert Stern are the photographers who will take her in studio photos  from 1956 to 1962 and no longer working for film studios, but for the press (through press agencies or advertising contracts signed with magazines). No doubt by this choice, Marilyn seems to signify wanting to move away from the diktat of the studios and gain independence to better control her image conveyed in the media.


La ville d'Hollywood est la mecque du cinéma américain et ce, depuis les années 1910s. Pour faire rêver les spectateurs et le public international, l'industrie cinématographique - à travers les diverses compagnies de studios (Universal, Paramount, 20th Century Fox, RKO, MGM, Warner, Goldwyn Mayer...) emploie des photographes pour sublimer et magnifier ses acteurs et ses actrices. Il faut vendre du rêve, de l'inaccessible, du glamour et les actrices d'Hollywood sont alors notamment photographiées en studio par des portraits en noir et blanc, jouant sur les ombres et lumières des éclairages, vêtues d'une fourrure en étole, un accessoire qui représente à lui seul le glamour, la grâce et le chic. Ces photographies qui sont à but publicitaires, sont ainsi destinées à être publiées dans la presse magazine afin de "vendre" ce rêve au public à travers le monde. Les actrices ne sont pas des personnes lambdas que l'on croise au hasard d'une rue, elles deviennent ainsi par ces images des icônes mystifiées et iréelles.
Et chaque studio a son photographe portraitiste attitré, petite liste (non exhaustive) des noms les plus connus et répandus des photographes, par ordre alphabétique: Kenneth Alexander, Ted Allan, Virgil Apger, Max Munn Autrey, Ernest Bachrach, Russell Ball, Clarence Sinclair Bull, Eric Carpenter, Robert Coburn, Otto Dyar, John Engstead, Tom Evans, Bud Fraker, Jack Freulich, Elmer Fryer, Edwin Bower Hesser, George Hurrell, Ray Jones, Eugene Kornman, Irving Lippmann, Gaston Longet, Ruth Harriet Louise, John Miehle, Frank Powolny, Eugene Robert Richee, AL Whitey Schaefer, Bert Six, Laszlo Willinger.
Les photographes "stars" renommés étant George Hurrell, Clarence Sinclair Bull, Robert Coburn, Eugene Robert Richee et Frank Powolny, qui à eux seuls, ont bien photographié l'ensemble des acteurs et actrices d'Hollywood entre 1930 et 1960.
Ces portraits font partis de la machine à rêve véhiculée par les studios d'Hollywood et se déploie dès les années 1920s (quand les acteurs et actrices du cinéma muet deviennent des stars aux yeux du public) trouvant son apogée dans les années 1940s et 1950s. Mais dans les années 1960s, ce type de photographies s'essoufle, les moeurs changent et les nouvelles idoles veulent transmettre une image plus naturelle (la culture hippie et son esprit de liberté est passée par là); ces images suivent d'ailleurs aussi la tendance cinématographique avec l'arrivée du mouvement de la nouvelle vague en France et ses répercussions dans le cinéma international et américain et les nouveaux réalisateurs d'alors (les années 1970s avec Scorsese, Spielberg, Coppola) mettant en scène un cinéma plus vrai et balayant le glamour de leur prédécesseurs. Alors les paillettes et le glamour est récupéré par le mouvement musical qui bat son plein dans les années 1970s: le disco. Mais ce type de photographies n'est plus en vogue et finit par s'éteindre totalement: les portraits des actrices sublimées et glamourisées avec une étole de fourrure s'inscrivent alors dans une époque bien déterminée, considérée aujourd'hui comme le "classique du vintage hollywoodien".

The city of Hollywood is the mecca of American cinema since the 1910s. To make the spectators and the international public dream, the film industry - through the various studio companies (Universal, Paramount, 20th Century Fox, RKO, MGM, Warner, Goldwyn Mayer ...) employs photographers to sublimate and magnify its actors and actresses. They have to sell dreams, the inaccessible, glamor and Hollywood actresses are then photographed in the studio with black and white portraits, playing on the shadows and lights, dressed in a fur stole, an accessory that alone represents glamor, grace and chic. These photographs, which are for advertising purposes, are thus intended to be published in the magazine press in order to "sell" this dream to the public throughout the world. Actresses are not ordinary people that one crosses at random on a street, they thus become, through these images, mystified and unreal icons. And each studio has its own portrait photographer, a small (non-exhaustive) list of the most famous and widespread names of photographers, in alphabetical order: Kenneth Alexander, Ted Allan, Virgil Apger, Max Munn Autrey, Ernest Bachrach, Russell Ball, Clarence Sinclair Bull, Eric Carpenter, Robert Coburn, Otto Dyar, John Engstead, Tom Evans, Bud Fraker, Jack Freulich, Elmer Fryer, Edwin Bower Hesser, George Hurrell, Ray Jones, Eugene Kornman, Irving Lippmann, Gaston Longet, Ruth Harriet Louise, John Miehle, Frank Powolny, Eugene Robert Richee, AL Whitey Schaefer, Bert Six, Laszlo Willinger.
Renowned "star" photographers are George Hurrell, Clarence Sinclair Bull, Robert Coburn, Eugene Robert Richee and Frank Powolny, who alone have photographed all of Hollywood's actors and actresses between 1930 and 1960.
These portraits are part of the dream machine conveyed by Hollywood studios and unfold from the 1920s (when silent film actors and actresses became stars in the eyes of the public) reaching their peak in the 1940s and 1950s. But in the 1960s, this type of photography lost its breath, customs changed and the new idols wanted to convey a more natural image (the hippie culture and its spirit of freedom has passed through this); these images also follow the cinematographic trend with the arrival of the new wave movement in France and its repercussions in international and American cinema and the new directors of the time (the 1970s with Scorsese, Spielberg, Coppola) putting in scene a cinema more true and sweeping the glamor of their predecessors. Then the glitter and the glamor is recovered by the musical movement which is in full swing in the 1970s: the disco. But this type of photography is no longer in vogue and ends up being completely extinct: the portraits of sublimated and glamorized actresses with a fur stole are then part of a well-defined period, considered today as the "classic of vintage hollywood ".

Lots Entertainment & Music Memorabilia - Heritage Auctions - 11/2017

Lots sur Marilyn Monroe des enchères
'Entertainment & Music Memorabilia'

organisées le 11 novembre 2017
par Heritage Auctions
à Dallas aux Etats-Unis.


Lot 89001: A Marilyn Monroe Unusual Inscribed 'Frame Glass' to Arthur Miller, Circa 1960.
A black and white photograph of the star circa 1956, looking wistful, housed in a black wooden frame with the glass signed by her in red wax pencil "I know when / I am not there / for you -- !!!" with her added line marks below forming what look like "X's" or "M's" or both but hard to decipher; consigned directly by the daughters of Aaron Frosch [Monroe's attorney] who said that when their father was handling MM's divorce from Arthur Miller, she gave Frosch a number of items she didn't want anymore, including this photograph which she evidently inscribed to Miller as an apology; interestingly, MM wrote this note with a colored wax pencil, the same kind she used to cross out images of herself on contact sheets that she didn't like; also intriguing to speculate about the photograph itself: it was likely a favorite of hers or Miller's and it was probably hanging somewhere in the couple's home where MM knew Miller would see her message on it. (Please note the inscription has changed to an orangish color and it's faded due to age.)

Circa 1946.

An original print with a matte finish, depicting a young headshot of the twenty year-old before she looked like "Marilyn," signed in blue fountain pen ink on the lower right side "To Roy, / My favorite guard. / Always / Marilyn Monroe;" "Roy" being Roy Volker, a security guard at Twentieth Century Fox Studios throughout the 1940s-1950s; the inscription on this particular photograph is noteworthy because it appears to have been signed just as MM was changing her name -- it shows the childhood writing style of Norma Jeane Baker but is signed with her adult stage name of Marilyn Monroe.
