Starting on November 4, 2016 the Berlin based galerie hiltawsky will present the exhibition Marilyn Monroe. 90th Anniversary. A Life in Pictures. The group exhibition will showcase approx. 70 photographs, including some very rare images.

Among them are an early photograph of a Valentine’s Day chocolate advertisement, Norma Jeane’s first cover photo for a U.S. magazine (Romance), the legendary “flying skirt” (by Elliott Erwitt and Bernard of Hollywood) for the film “The Seven Year Itch” and virtually unknown, very private photographs of Marilyn Monroe with the notable American writer Carl Sandburg by Arnold Newman and images of the legendary pool scene by Lawrence Schiller.

Marilyn Monroe (*June 1, 1926 in Los Angeles, California as Norma Jeane Mortenson, baptismal name Norma Jeane Baker; † August 5, 1962 in Brentwood, Los Angeles) was a U.S.-American actress, model, singer, and film producer. In the 1950s, she gained international acclaim as a movie star, later becoming an icon of the silver screen and a sex symbol of the 20th century.
