1962 Marilyn Monroe Original Photo Barris Signed Stamp Last Photos Beach
Here she is in a candid shot looking absolutely stunning, so happy, so gorgeous in one of her rare Green towel shots and this is the only photo George took of her that day in the towel at the beach with a glass of wine or champagne in her hand. In other photos at Tim Leimert’s house she is photographed clothed and with a glass of wine or champagne but this is the only known beach shot where she is holding one. Size 5 x 7 inch Gelatin silver or chromogenic. Produced and signed by George Barris and this is a live signature meaning George Barris actually touched and signed the photo itself. This signature is one of the most beautiful examples of George Barris’ signature that I have ever seen. And in the beginning of my collecting it was very difficult for me to discern if it was a live signature or not I would actually have to take my photos to a photographic expert (now I can tell on my own) but the way you can tell is under high powered magnification and light you will see that on only negative signed photos the signature, at a certain angle, underneath the light, will completely disappear underneath the photographic gloss and that will never happen on an actual live signed photo such as this one and my other ones because the signature is always on top of the photo and that’s how you can tell if it’s, the most desirable, live, signed photograph or the all too common negative signed photograph which you will never find from me I don’t have many signed ones but I made certain that all of mine were hand signed live signatures by George Barris I have approximately 5 left all different poses and all extremely rare. Rare shot; one of the “last photos” ever to be taken of the young starlet. It was very difficult for me to obtain this particular image. Stamped by Kim Goodwin on back. Embossed by Edward Weston. Limited edition this one is number 10 out of only 99. This is from, if not the best, then one of the very best Marilyn Monroe photo preservationists of all time, Kim Goodwin. Kim was a man of many talents, he loved and had a deep appreciation for Marilyn, he actually worked for photographer, George Barris, and chose to be paid in photographs and negatives. He was extremely talented, among many talents, he was a photographic preservationist, there are many books that credit him for the use of his photos. He was a highly skilled Marilyn doll designer, some would argue perhaps the best because his dolls looked so life like and captured Marilyn’s beauty in a way no other designer could and they had a gracefulness to them that was unparalleled, and as mentioned above contributed to many books on her. He was also a sought after, highly regarded, expert stylist/artist to the stars. Taken shortly before Marilyn’s passing in June of 1962. Barris went shopping for Marilyn before this shooting and is quoted in his book as saying On my shopping spree for Marilyn, I went to two of her favorite stores, Jax on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills, and Saks Fifth Avenue. At Jax I bought her some beautiful slacks and decorative Emilio Pucci sport shirts. When Marilyn & Barris got to Tim’s house, Barris introduced him and his maid, Louise, to Marilyn. Louise became so nervous when Marilyn shook her hand that she fluttered and stuttered, saying, Is that really you? No one will believe me when I say I met and shook hands with Marilyn Monroe. I can hardly believe it myself. Is that really you? ” Marilyn, laughing, replied, “Sometimes I can hardly believe it, too.
