Marilyn 'Bundled Up' - The Last Shoot by George Barris
This playful chromogenic print of Marilyn wrapped up in a woollen sweater was personally produced and signed by George Barris in 1987. It measures 13-1/2 x 10-1/4 inches (34.3 x 26.0cm) and features the artist's signature in ink recto. It is editioned '40/99' in ink on the Barris copyright credit stamp verso and was officially published by Marilyn Monroe/Weston Editions Ltd.
This photo was one of the very last to be taken of Marilyn. George Barris remembers: "Late in the afternoon it turned cold and Marilyn was tired. We'd been working hard. She didn't complain, though, and she sat on the beach wrapped in a fisherman's sweater, so I put a blanket over her."
In spite of her reputation, George Barris remembers Marilyn very fondly. At the end of this now legendary final shoot, Marilyn created a very special memory for her favourite photographer: "She puckered up and said, This is just for you, George, and blew a kiss to me."
