‘Works from the Avon Collection’

Built around the thesis of “Beauty through the eyes of women,” more than 90 lots will compose a featured section and a portion of the proceeds from the sale will benefit the Avon Foundation for Women, the company’s charitable organization dedicated to breast cancer research and ending domestic violence. Significant works by Imogen Cunningham, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Berenice Abbott, and Cindy Sherman as well as other prominent female photographers will be included in the auction.

‘Marilyn Monroe: The Last Sitting’ by Bert Stern

In June of 1962, Bert Stern was commissioned by Vogue Magazine for a photo shoot with Marilyn Monroe at the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles. He took over 2,500 photographs of her over a three-day period, just six weeks before her suicide. This shoot would become known as the ‘Last Sitting,’ providing the world with one last, captivating look at Monroe before her tragic and untimely death. Ten photographs that were compiled into an editioned portfolio will be sold at Freeman’s on September 10. Although singular images from the shoot can often be found at auction, it is unusual to find a complete set. In addition, this set is an excellent example of photographs taken during the first day of the shoot when Stern and Monroe were alone together without the presence of Vogue editors, make-up artists, and wardrobe assistants. They are hazy and dreamlike, created through the use of white paper backgrounds and diffused, natural light.
