    Marilyn Monroe Limited Edition Eisenstaedt Photograph. An elated and radiant Marilyn Monroe captured in a candid moment by photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt in 1953. Monroe had a lot to smile about that year -- her courtship with Joe DiMaggio was captivating the nation, and Niagra, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and How to Marry a Millionaire were all released in 1953, catapulting her career to new level. Printed as a limited edition (#21 out of 250) from an Eisenstaedt negative culled from the LIFE Picture Collection archives, with an accompanying COA certifying its origin and print number. Two other photographs from the same Eisenstaedt shoot currently retail for $6,000 to $7,000. Eisenstaedt is considered by many to be the best photojournalist of the 20th century, and is best known for his iconic image of a nurse in a sailor's arms, snapped on August 27, 1945, as they celebrated Victory Over Japan Day in New York City.
