On this day in 1962 screen beauty Marilyn Monroe was found dead at her Los Angeles home. Ever since Marilyn Monroe’s image, burnished by time and early death, has become a 20th century icon. Her impact on the art world is showing no sign of slowing down. Our collection of limited edition prints attests that the American actress, model, and singer, remains the ultimate artist’s muse.
Marilyn Monroe has long been a popular subject for the Godfather of British Pop Art Sir Peter Blake as well as his American counterpart Andy Warhol. Both Diamond Dust Marilyn 2010 (Giclee and Diamond Dust Signed Limited Edition of 150) and Marilyn (Signed Limited Edition Silkscreen of 175) transform the infamous actress into a Pop Art darling.
A recent new release by Martin Richardson, Framed Marilyn (Lenticular on Acrylic Signed Limited Edition of 15), uses incredible lenticular technology to bring Marilyn to life in a glamorous 3-D moving portrait. From Pop Art to Street Art, Marilyn Monroe has proven to be the perfect muse for artists as diverse as Ben Allen, Richard Duardo, HYBRID, Pure Evil and Pakpoom Silaphan.
