Hundreds of photographs of famous persons, including many pictures of Marilyn Monroe, have been sold at an auction in Poland for as much as $750,000. Images of Audrey Hepburn, Marlene Dietrich, Grace Kelly and Liza Minelli were also sold.
According to the New York Daily News, the 238 photos, taken by legendary photographer Milton H Greene, were sold in the auction house Desa Unicum in Warsaw, with only one photo remaining unsold. Around 500 bidders paid a total of 2.4 million Polish zlotys, making it the nations biggest ever photo auction.
The pictures of Monroe were mainly taken between 1953 and 1957, a time when Greene was working as her adviser and business partner. The shots, which include both black and white and color photos, and natural as well as studio surroundings, are valued so highly because many of them were made into prints during Marilyn's lifetime. Do you think photos of Marilyn Monroe would be worth paying this much for?
