Marilyn Monroe Signed & Inscribed Portrait "To Joe"
Item Details
Description

Marilyn Monroe Signed and Inscribed Portrait "To Joe …", Superb! *Could it be DiMaggio?

Enormous Signed Iconic black and white portrait of Marilyn Monroe, leaning up against the wall, in her classic come hither pose. The portrait depicts Marilyn in bare shoulders with her famous voluptuous pout. Signed and Inscribed by Marilyn Monroe to "Joe", perhaps THE "Joe", as "To Joe / Love & Kisses / Marilyn Monroe. Fine condition 11" x 14". Accompanied by a Letter of Authenticity from PSA/DNA.

An extraordinary oversized photo of Monroe, very few of this size have ever come to auction, this one having a phenomenal inscription. There are so many photos extant of Marilyn and Joe Smooching that we just thought to include a few for review. Please note however that these are not included for sale with this lot.

*According to an advanced collector of Hollywood photos, Lt. Tal Kanagher, a Burbank Police Officer (who we were unable to locate in a google search) informed said collector that that DiMaggio had informed him that Marilyn “NEVER” signed a photo to him (DiMaggio). As of now this is unsubstantiated but worth noting. We do not know if “Joe” is just some “regular joe” or not and will let the bidders decide as to attribution.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
