    Marilyn Monroe as Clara Bow by Richard Avedon (First Edition, 1983). Autographed Poster (20" X 28"). Miscellaneous.
    In 1983, the famed photographer Richard Avedon released a signed set of prints for photos he had taken of Marilyn Monroe on December 22, 1958 and printed in Life Magazine. Known as the "Fabled Enchantress Series," the images were celebrations of sex symbols of the 20th century, of which, Monroe was certainly the ruling goddess of the day. The set was originally issued with four prints and captured the likeness of Monroe as Theda Bara, Lillian Russell, Jean Harlow, and Clara Bow. Featured is a poster of Monroe as Clara Bow. An unrestored signed poster with bright color and a clean overall appearance. It may have general signs of use, such as slight edge wear, some surface scuffs, or very minor tears. Please see full-color, enlargeable image above for more details. Very Fine+.
