Bert Stern's best known work is a collection of over 2,500 photographs, some nude or semi-nude, taken of Marilyn Monroe over a three day period just a few weeks before her untimely death in June of 1962. As they were the last posed photographs taken of Monroe, the portfolio has come to be known as "The Last Sitting." The photographs were taken for Vogue, who published several of them following Monroe's death. A book containing these photographs, including copies of proofs over which Monroe had written comments, or crossed out several photos with lipstick, was published in 1992 with the title Marilyn Monroe: The Complete Last Sitting. These images have become some of the most iconic and sought after photos with a world-wide following of art collectors.
