    Marilyn Monroe Hand Signed Dye Transfer by Bert Stern. A one-of-a-king image from one of the most important photo sessions ever. Bert Stern, one of the most famous photographers of the 1960s, was the last photographer granted a sitting with Marilyn Monroe -- six weeks before she died. In a three-day session arranged for Vogue magazine in July of 1962 in the Los Angeles Bel-Air Hotel, Stern took nearly 2,700 fashion shots, portraits, and nude studies, of which only a handful were published at the time. This 20" x 20" photographic print is a unique dye transfer, created in a step before the printing of the regular editions whose prints typically sell for thousands of dollars. Made obsolete by computer retouching, they are of a much higher quality than the actual prints themselves. In Excellent condition, this print was signed by Stern in Gold ink on the lower left corner during a 2001 "Today Show" appearance.
