In 1962, photographer Bert Stern shot a series of photos of Marilyn Monroe that have collectively come to be known as “The Last Sitting.” Taken during several boozy sessions at the Hotel Bel-Air, the photographs are arguably the most famous images ever captured of America’s most famous actress: Monroe, sleepy-eyed and naked, sips from a Champagne glass, enacts a fan dance of sorts with various diaphanous scarves, romps with erotic playfulness on a bed of white linens. Six weeks after she had posed, Monroe was found dead of an apparent barbiturate overdose.

Bert Stern conceived of his ultimate photographic romance with a vivacious woman Marilyn Monroe on his flight to Rome in the spring of 1962. He was at the height of his success, eagerly sought after by art directors and fashion editors, and able to gain access to nearly any celebrity- so why not America’s leading sex symbol, Marilyn Monroe. Bert Stern wanted more than a historically iconic image of the movie star: “ What I wanted from Marilyn Monroe was the nudes because I couldn’t think of anything to put on her.” In his book The Last Sitting, Bert Stern commented, “ I was preparing for Marilyn’s arrival like a lover, and yet I was here to take photographs. Not to take her in my arms, but to turn her into tones, and planes, and shapes, and ultimately an image for the printed page.”
