    Marilyn Monroe personal iconic close-up portrait photograph by Jack Cardiff. (1957) Vintage original gelatin silver 16 x 20 in. portrait photograph on textured glossy paper mounted to board. Taken during filming of The Prince and the Showgirl, this was Arthur Miller's favorite photograph of Marilyn, and it actually hung in the couple's Roxbury, Connecticut home. When their marriage broke up, Marilyn reportedly left the photograph behind as what she called "an act of revenge," the sensuality on display to serve as a reminder to Miller of what he had lost. Exhibiting some minor adhesive staining to lower left edge. Originally from the collection of Marilyn's masseur, Ralph Roberts. In very good condition. Provenance: Christie's East, Film and Television Memorabilia, 18 December 1995, Lot 338.
