Marilyn Monroe at very beginning of her career

Not many people know that at the beginning of career, world cinema legend Marilyn Monroe was a model for one of the most famous pin-up artists Earl Moran. Monroe started to pose for him, being a 19-year-old aspiring actress, while Moran has already established himself as a leading illustrator of beautiful female portraits. The artist photographed the young Marilyn, and then produced images which were almost indistinguishable from the original.

About working with Monroe Moran said, “She did everything naturally. Always performed what I needed. And she was a very sensual woman. Better than all the rest. On an emotional level she was also doing everything right. Her movements, hands, body – everything was perfect.”
