Marilyn Monroe, Milton Greene "black Sitting" Photo Poster In Mailing Tube, 1972:
From "The Legend and the Truth" exhibition that took place at the David Stuart Galleries in Los Angeles, California in August 1972. The print is on heavy stock paper, measuring 24" x 18". Copyright 1972 Milton Greene, All Rights Reserved is on the lower corner. It is unopened, in original plastic wrap and mailing tube sent in 1973. A poster made from the "Black Sitting" photo session of 1956. Greene's work with Marilyn Monroe, whom he first shot for a layout for Look in 1953, changed the course of his career. The two struck up a friendship and, when Monroe left Los Angeles to study acting with Lee Strasberg in New York City, she stayed with Greene, his wife Amy and young son Joshua in Connecticut. Together with Greene, Monroe formed Marilyn Monroe Productions, a production company, in an effort, to gain control of her career from Hollywood powerhouses. Greene would go on to produce Bus Stop (1956) and The Prince and the Showgirl (1957). The two also collaborated on some 53 photo sessions, some of which became well known, including "The Black Sitting".
