Happy 89th Birthday Marilyn Monroe, You’re Beautiful.

To celebrate Marilyn Monroe’s 89th birthday, Artnet have revealed a fascinating set of photographs of the cinema goddess herself. Taking a look at the cultural icon from her early days, right up until her last photo shoot, they play well to the standard we’ve come to expect.

Some of the very intimate photographs might not be safe for work, so be careful when scrolling down however don’t let that put you off the stunning pieces by photographic artists such as Stern & Schiller.

All these photographs are currently being auctioned on Artnet and prices range from $800 to $24000. I think my favourite must be the George Barris print revealing a playful, but timid Monroe. Current bidding on this one is at $4700.
