Marilyn 'Angel' A Rare Portrait by Frank Powolny, 1950
A Rare Powolny Original, 1950
This uniquely angelic print of Marilyn is a vintage original photograph taken by Frank Powolny circa 1950. It measures 11 x 9 inches (28 x 23 cm) approx and is editioned 'F999/5/213' recto. Until acquisition, it was a treasured photo from ‘The Lost Archive of Marilyn Monroe’, originally owned by legendary Actor’s Studio’s Director, Lee Strasberg.
Frank Powolny (1901-1986) was the principal portrait and still photographer at 20th Century Fox and its predecessor from 1923 to 1966. He captured literally thousands of photos of Hollywood’s most glamorous stars - most of which regaled billboards, cinema lobbies, magazines and newspapers. He was the photographer who took the last known photographs of Marilyn on the set of her final unfinished movie, ‘Something’s Got to Give’. Powolny’s unforgettable publicity image of Marilyn for the movie, Niagara, was famously appropriated by artist Andy Warhol for his iconic 1960s silkscreens.
