FOR SALE: Marilyns taken 1954 printed by gsz 1994

Posted by George on June 11th, 2009 in Uncategorized


In order to save money ( a good thing) to get needed frames for a show of my Bourbon Street work for the Montreal Jazz Festival , I removed a series of five Marilyns from their frames. I was surprised to see that they had rested comfortably since 1994 when I showed my first exhibition of “Still Movies” at Galerie Art 45 in Montreal. So, I have a series of five 16/20 prints of Marilyn, printed in 1994, 50 years after I made the photographs. (Log # 876). They are glossy matt dried, printed on Ilford Bartya paper. There are some slight bumps on the surface which is common with glossy/matt. I would say the condition is excellent. All signed and in passe partouts, hinged at top. They are listed in my log at $12,000.
