Màj posts: 1ères séances Milton Greene en septembre 1953

Les posts sur la première collaboration entre Milton Greene et Marilyn Monroe ont été mis à jour: ajout et réorganisation des photographies et des informations liées aux séances.
The posts on the first collaboration between Milton Greene and Marilyn Monroe have been updated: addition and reorganization of photographs and information related to the sessions.

Fleur Cowles, la rédactrice en chef du magazine Look souhaite faire un article sur le cinéma dans une prochaine édition du magazine. Elle demande au photographe Milton Greene de s'occuper des séances photos avec Marilyn Monroe.
Milton photographie pour la première fois Marilyn Monroe le 2 septembre 1953, le lendemain de son retour au Canada où elle a tourné les extérieurs du film "La rivière sans retour": Marilyn porte encore un bandage à sa cheville gauche suite à l'entorse qu'elle s'est faite sur le tournage. Milton fait plusieurs séances dans les studios photos du magazine Look à Los Angeles mais aussi à l'extérieur (Laurel Canyon, studios de la Fox sur le tournage de "Rivière sans retour" et dans les locaux de Look) les jours suivants. Très satisfaite du travail de Milton, cette première collaboration marque aussi le début d'une amitié durable.
Fleur Cowles, the editor-in-chief of Look magazine, wants to make an article about cinema in a future edition of the magazine. She asks photographer Milton Greene to take photo sessions with Marilyn Monroe.
Milton first photographs Marilyn Monroe on September 2, 1953, the day after she came back from Canada where she shot the exterior scenes of the movie "River of no Return": Marilyn still wears a bandage in her left ankle after sprained it was done on the set. Milton does several sessions in the studios of Look magazine in Los Angeles but also outside (Laurel Canyon, on the Fox's studio set of "River of no return" and in the office of Look) the following days. Very satisfied with Milton's work, this first collaboration also marks the beginning of a lasting friendship.

Expo Divine Marilyn

 affiche-Marilyn-1-version-4-768x1086    Du 9 juillet au 22 septembre 2019, exposition Divine Marilyn à la Galerie Joseph de Paris. 

Pour la première fois en France, cette grande exposition sur 850m2 regroupera les trois plus grands noms de la photographie américaine : Sam Shaw, Milton Greene et Bert Stern - qui ont immortalisé Marilyn Monroe à différentes époques de sa vie au travers de près de 200 photos ou documents. 
Elle sera réalisée avec la collaboration de Meta et Edith Shaw, filles de Sam Shaw ; Joshua Greene, fils de Milton Greene, et Olivier Lorquin, Président de la Fondation Dina Vierny – Musée Maillol pour Bert Stern.

L’exposition visera à montrer à travers des clichés inédits que Marilyn était loin d’être la « Pin-up blonde » qu’elle prétendait être et qui lui avait servi de masque lors de chaque sortie publique, mais qu’elle était également une femme enjouée et vraie, loin de l’image à laquelle elle est souvent rattachée.
Marilyn a réussi à construire sa propre histoire et sa légende, au-delà de l’image emblématique que les industries de la publicité et du cinéma ont fait d’elle.


 Sam Shaw

expo-1-Marilyn-Monroe-et-Arthur-Miller-par-Sam-Shaw De 1952 à 1962, Sam Shaw capture un grand nombre de clichés de la vie privée de la pin-up, notamment son quotidien de jeune épouse auprès du dramaturge Arthur Miller, une période où elle semble comblée de bonheur.
50 photos respirant la simplicité seront exposées dans ce corner, mais aussi des clichés emblématiques, comme celui de Marilyn retenant l’envolée de sa robe blanche au-dessus d’une bouche de métro à New York, sur le tournage du film de Billy Wilder « Sept ans de réflexion ».
nb: Meta et Edith Shaw, filles de Sam Shaw, seront présentes au vernissage.


Milton Greene

expo-3-Marilyn-Monroe-en-ballerine-par-Milton-Greene-1  Un autre corner mettra en avant 50 photos du photographe Milton Greene. Des clichés iconiques qui ont fait le tour du monde comme ceux de la star en tenue de ballerine.
Grâce à son travail tout en finesse et en élégance, Milton Greene rappelle la capacité de cette femme aux mille visages à changer de personnage avec un naturel qui étonne.
nb: Joshua Greene, le fils de Milton sera présent au vernissage.


Bert Stern

expo-marilyn_monroe_bert_stern_estate_crucifixion_ii__1962_jpg_2926_north_640x640_transparent  Mondialement connu pour avoir été le dernier photographe à immortaliser Marilyn Monroe, Bert Stern sera également à l’honneur à travers l’exposition de douze tirages grands formats de la « dernière » séance photo de Marilyn qu’il réalise pour Vogue en 1962, quelques jours avant sa disparition. Une séance photos qui durera 3 jours pendant lesquels 2571 photos seront shootées.
Stern avait capturé une Marilyn sans fards, dans un moment de liberté et d’abandon mais c’est elle-même qui avait choisi les photos sur les planches contact avec le souci constant de contrôler son image.


Arty
Symbole de la culture Pop et du Street-Art, Marilyn est souvent revisitée sous d’autres formes. Collages, pochoirs et dessins, une quinzaine d’oeuvres d’artistes émergents y seront exposées.


Norma Jean avant Marilyn
L’exposition retracera également le parcours et la métamorphose de Norma Jeane Baker en Marilyn Monroe.
Un morphing photo depuis ses clichés de bébé jusqu’à cette jeune fille aux boucles brunes qui rêvait de devenir célèbre.
Elle avait très vite compris  que  si elle faisait un grand nombre de couvertures de magazine, elle deviendrait vite très populaire. La jeune femme multiplie donc les séances photos, que ce soit pour gagner sa vie comme avec ce calendrier de 1949 où elle apparaît nue, ou pour construire les premiers échelons de sa carrière. En posant devant une multitude de photographes, Marilyn Monroe voulait être regardée et aimée par le public, mais aussi remarqué par les studios de cinéma.


Marilyn pendant la guerre de Corée
Alors qu’elle était en voyage de noces en Japon avec son mari Joe DiMaggio, Marilyn s’est rendue en Corée pour divertir les soldats américains à la fin de la guerre de Corée en 1954. Un épisode méconnu de sa vie que les commissaires d’exposition ont pu recréer grâce à des films d’archives et des clichés réalisés par les quatre photographes officiels mais aussi par des photos prises par les soldats eux-mêmes.


Tournage de "Sept ans de réflexion"
Un corner consacré à l’histoire de la photo la plus célèbre et la plus sulfureuse du cinéma hollywoodien. Une scène culte qui élèvera Marilyn au rang des légendes mondiales, mais qui provoquera aussi son divorce avec Joe DiMaggio.


Et aussi...
Des clichés connus et moins connus, des affiches de film, couvertures de magazines et presse d’époque…

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.)

 Lot 143: MARILYN MONROE WORN BLACK COLOBUS COAT
A mid-1940s black colobus coat worn by Marilyn Monroe to the 1948 film premiere of The Emperor Waltz (Paramount, 1948). The coat has broad shoulders, a cordé collar, a satin lining, and a Jerrold's Van Nuys, Calif. label. Although the black colobus is currently on the endangered species list, it was quite fashionable in the 1940s. Monroe wrote in a letter to Grace Goddard dated December 3, 1944, "I found out that its [sic] possible to buy a Gold Coast Monkey Coat. I shall write to you about it later." The coat was gifted from Monroe to Jacquita M. Rigoni (Warren), who was the great-niece to Anne Karger, mother of Monroe's voice coach, Freddie Karger. Monroe had a close relationship with the family, and the coat has remained in their possession. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Jacqui Rigoni detailing the family's relationship to Monroe and the history of the coat.
The monkey species used to make this Marilyn Monroe monkey fur coat is on the Endangered Species list. U.S. Endangered Species Act regulations required by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service impose certain regulations on the sale of this coat. Please read the following carefully:
Please read the following carefully: The Marilyn Monroe monkey fur coat may be sold to a resident of California without requiring a Federal permit. A non-California resident may bid on this coat and if he or she were the winning bidder could apply for a Federal permit to remove the coat from the state of California. Julien’s has been advised that a Federal permit would likely be REFUSED by the governing offices. It is vehemently advised that non-residents of California DO NOT bid on this Marilyn Monroe owned monkey fur coat. If you bid on this lot and are unable to obtain a permit Julien’s has no liability and will be unable to refund you for your purchase.
A California resident who purchases this coat and later moves from California to another state would not be required to obtain a permit if he or she maintained ownership of the coat when changing state of residence. However, the owner would need to make sure there are no state regulations prohibiting the transfer of the coat from one state to another.
Estimate: $20,000 - $30,000 | Winning Bid: $32,000

Lot 144: MARILYN MONROE FAN FROM THE PRINCE AND THE SHOWGIRL

The frame and guard are embellished with floral motif carvings embellished with pink, blue, and gold-metallic paint. The accompanying letter from the consignor explains that the fan was gifted by Monroe to William Louis George Le Brun, known as Louis Le Brun in the film industry, who was the Chief Production Accountant for Warner Bros. in the United Kingdom. When Monroe was taken ill while filming, Le Brun, who was responsible for overseeing the distribution of all finances, which involved the insurance and wellbeing of the cast and production team, stayed by her side. As a thank-you, Monroe gave him this fan, or more specifically gave the fan to his wife as an apology for keeping Le Brun from his family. At the time the fan was received several of the fan blades were broken, presumed to be from use during filming. The fan has remained in the possession of the Le Brun family since the gift was made by Monroe.

 Lot 155: MARILYN MONROE BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S SCRIPT AND REPORT
A clean copy of the screenplay for Breakfast at Tiffany's written by George Axelrod and dated July 9, 1959. Monroe was considering the part, and she sought the opinions of her professional team including the Strasbergs, her husband, and management team. The script is accompanied by a single-page, typed "report" dated September 23, 1959, which also has the name "Parone" typed to the left of the date. Literary luminary Edward Parone was at the time running Monroe's production company and most likely is the one who wrote this single-page, scathing review of the script, leading with the simple sentence, "I think not." It goes on to criticize the screenplay, determining, "I can see Marilyn playing a part like Holly and even giving this present one all the elan it badly needs, but I don't feel she should play it: it lacks insight and warmth and reality and importance." It has been long reported that Monroe declined the part upon the advice of Lee Strasberg, but this document provides further evidence that other people in her inner circle advised her not to take the role. Together with a four-page shooting schedule for November 4, 1960, for the film.

Lot 158: MARILYN MONROE MEDICAL FILE
A medical file pertaining to cosmetic surgery performed on Marilyn Monroe. The file includes facial X-rays and doctors' notes from the office of Dr. Michael Gurdin, M.D., and the X-ray office of Drs. Conti and Steinberg. Dr. Gurdin's chart on Monroe begins on July 14, 1958, and lists the patient as Marilyn Miller with addresses in New York and Los Angeles. The chief complaint listed is "chin deformity" and goes on to give a medical history that begins in 1950 and ends in 1962. Listed are a 1956 bout of neutropenia in England; 1957 ectopic pregnancy in New York; and 1950 cartilage implant in chin that the doctor observed had slowly begun to dissolve. Those with knowledge of the implant procedure have explained that this was done in association with a tip rhinoplasty, a procedure involving the tip of Monroe's nose only, not the bones. The last entry is dated June 7, 1962, and reports a fall at between 2 and 3 a.m. resulting in swelling and tenderness of the nose. Monroe was brought to Dr. Gurdin by her psychoanalyst, Dr. Ralph Greenson. Monroe was referred to Drs. Conti and Steinberg for X-rays. For her visit to the radiologists she was given the alias "Miss Joan Newman," and that name appears on the paperwork with Monroe's Brentwood home address. Six X-rays are in the folder: a frontal facial bones X-ray; a smaller X-ray that is a composite of the right and left sides of her nasal bones; and four small dental X-rays into the roof of Monroe's mouth, looking upward toward the nasal bones. The conclusion, written by Dr. Conti and dated June 7, 1962, is that there was no damage to Monroe's nose due to her fall. A more recent evaluation of the X-rays indicates a very minute hairline fracture of this bone. Monroe had turned 36 less than a week earlier. On June 8, the following day, Monroe was fired from the film Something's Got to Give (20th Century Fox, 1962).
