Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962): 40th Anniversary Tribute. 2002 by Stephen B Whatley
Tribute to Hollywood star Marilyn Monroe (June 1, 1926 - August 5, 1962), painted by expressionist artist Stephen B Whatley with deep prayer and passion on the exact 40th anniversary of her tragic passing - August 5, 2002.
The date is especially poignant to the artist, as it was the same date in 1981 that his beloved beautiful 37 year old mother was tragically lost. Heaven glitters with goddesses...
The portrait tribute was inspired by a still from the film Some Like It Hot (USA 1958).
Oil on canvas, 30 x 24in/76 x 61cm
