A Marilyn Monroe Group of Never-Before-Seen Black and White Photographs from Korea, 1954. Thirteen total, all vintage prints with a glossy finish; evidently taken by a professional military photographer as he had close access to MM at various stages of her trip including: three images of her wearing pants, shirt, and combat boots; four images of her wearing her houndstooth dress from "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes;" and six images of her wearing her sparkly cocktail dress as she sings on stage; overall, great images showing some of the more private moments MM had during this very public outing. (Please note most of these photographs have water damage, creasing, and slight tears throughout, but the images of MM herself are not affected.)

Learn about consigning with us

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
