Lot 809: MARILYN MONROE OVERCOAT
 A Marilyn Monroe fawn colored silk overcoat with black velvet collar detail and apricot satin lining. Seven-button closure and two exterior pockets. No size or maker’s label present. Fits size 8 dress form.
Monroe’s affection for this coat is documented by many photos of her wearing it during the years 1956-1959. Some have deemed it “Marilyn’s Favorite Coat.” As a newlywed, she modeled the coat in an iconic June 30, 1956, road trip and photoshoot with her new husband, playwright Arthur Miller, to his country home in Roxbury, Connecticut. Accompanying the couple in Miller’s black ’56 T-Bird was Marilyn Monroe Productions business associate and favored photographer, Milton Greene. Other extant photos include Monroe and Miller in June 26, 1959 as they departed New York’s Lennox Hill Hospital in New York City after Monroe's hospitalization for gynecological surgery.
This coat has been on continuous exhibit since 2010 at owner’s “Marshhaven” residence, Heritage Plantation, Pawleys Island, SC. The coat has been climate and UV protected.

Lot 712: EARL MORAN (AMERICAN, 1893-1984) MARILYN MONROE NUDE
 An oil on canvas painting of Marilyn Monroe reclining nude in bed. Signed middle right “Earl Moran.”
Earl Moran was a prominent pin-up artist during the 1930s and 1940s with a stylish flair that helped sell millions of calendars for publishers Brown & Bigelow. In 1946, Moran had the good fortune of meeting an aspiring model named Norma Jeane Dougherty, soon to become famous as Marilyn Monroe. Dozens of photographs were taken of Monroe in various poses, which Moran then used to paint seductive nudes in oil and pastel, portraying Monroe as a blonde, a redhead, and even as a brunette. The painting shown here was purchased by the consignor's wife directly from Moran after they met him at the Laguna Art Festival. The consignor fondly recalls how Moran explained to them that the model for the painting was a young woman named Norma Jeane Dougherty.

Lot 738: MARILYN MONROE CAST HAND AND FOOT PRINTS
 An acrylic cast of Marilyn Monroe's hand and foot prints from Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Monroe originally immortalized her hand and foot prints at the theatre in June 1953.

That project never reached fruition, and this is the only known cast prepared this way. On one side the cast looks like the original; the back shows the cast in negative relief.

Monroe was said to have known about the X-rays and their use, about which she said, "Isn't that sweet." Monroe's hospital visit was said to be for her chronic endometriosis, or as her doctor's described it, "For correction of a female disorder she has suffered for years." Monroe was in the hospital for several days and was filmed by the press when she left the hospital.
