Marilyn Monroe Magnet
This high quality magnet features a wonderful color image of Marilyn Monroe taken by photographer Milton Greene. This image from the famous 1954 Ballerina Series photographed in Milton Greene's studio in New York City. It was one of Marilyn's most famous and productive photo shoots.
The famous series yielded several of the true classic Marilyn images of which this image is the most famous. In fact it was selected by "Time, Inc" as one of the top 3 most popular images of the 20th Century.
For the photo shoot Marilyn was supplied with outfits by designer Ann Klein. Fortunately all the dresses were two sizes too small. In this photograph Marilyn is wearing a toule and satin dress that she had to literally hold it against her bosom with her arms to keep it from falling off.
The magnet is of high quality construction. The image is printed on a thick glossy laminated card stock. This is mounted over and around a heavier underlying card stock. Applied to the back is the magnet which covers the whole back of the item. It is about 1/8 of an inch thick overall.
The magnet was made in the USA.
