Marilyn Monroe and Her Beautiful Illustrations by Different Artists.
Who is she, a fabulous and stunning icon of all times? The legend whose name still represents the legacy of beauty and drama? I know that there are thousands of books written out there describing her life, lots of movies and documentary.
The same I can say about art, she has become an inspiration for an endless number of artists. Well, I thought that it might be interesting for you to read some interesting facts about her and to see the illustrations of incredible Merilyn Monroe by great illustrators.
Norma Jean Mortenson and Marylyn Monroe – what is common between them? Obviously, they are united by the fact that these names belong to one human.
Perhaps, because of the influence of two names, this extraordinarily and pretty woman had everything in her unfortunately short life: poverty and wealth, great successes and major disappointments, stormy blossom, admiration from millions of people and – early death. Having the incredible beauty and charm, however, she has never been absolutely happy.
Marylyn Monroe was born in 1926. Her mother was rather a windy person, suffered from depressive psychosis, and, that’s why little Norma spent her childhood in orphanages and foster families, where she was subject to sexual harassments twice. By the way, already at that time future, Marilyn knew that she would obligatorily become a star.
Take off From Aircraft Factory
The breaking point in the life of Norma at that time was the meeting with a photographer, looking for a girl for the photo session. The offer of the photographer to try herself as a photo model was a cherry pie for her as at that time Norma was working at a painting of airplanes in the aircraft factory and her labor obligations were more than earthly and daily. Norma perceived these trials as a “pass to the country of dreams”, having sacrificed her first marriage with Jim Dougherty for the sake of future celebrity.
Marriages and Love-affairs That did not Present the Main Thing
The personal life of Marylyn Monroe was very bright. It is not surprising that having the magic charm and beauty; she was not neglected by men. Three official marriages, love affairs with famous personalities, among them there were photographers, actors, singers, millionaires and even by hearsay brothers Kennedy. But no one from Marylyn’s men realized her main dream – to deliver a child.
Great Films – Terrible Shooting
Marylyn Monroe is the idol of her time but the joint shooting in cinema strike terror into her colleagues in the profession. The systematic delays for one-two hours or even for a day or two, unlearned texts of roles, a great number of takes, absolute misbehavior were the usual moments at shooting areas of films with her participation. The men-colleagues were not attracted even by romantic scenes with Marylyn as she with her slovenliness killed all positive emotions in them.
The apogee of glory and downhill of life
Marylyn Monroe acted in some tens of films, had the own producing center, was the fighter for rights of poor and black people. She as if was quick to catch everything, anticipating the early death, which caught her in 36 years from an overdose of drowsy.
The reasons for the death of Marylyn are not clear until now. There are some versions of what had happened: the suicide at the background of mental disorder, which Marylyn Monroe suffered during last years of life, a medical error (the medicines that Marylyn took were poorly compatible and could lead to the lethal outcome), murder to cease the relations between her brothers Kennedy.
The star that would never fade
Marylyn Monroe is until now considered to be one of the most beautiful women in history. Having lived not long but brightly she became a legend already at life. The destiny presented what many people dream about her – glory, wealth, world celebrity but deprived her of the most natural thing in the life of the woman but impossible in the life of Marylyn – the joy of maternity.
