Marilyn Monroe: A British Love AffairTo mark the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe's death, the National Portrait Gallery is staging a free display of photographs documenting the actress's connections with Britain. Photographs and magazine covers, vintage prints and film stills trace the transformation of the world famous star from popular pin-up to acclaimed actress between 1947 and 1962. During the year 1956 Monroe spent four months in Britain for The Prince and The Showgirl and photographs by Larry Burrows for Life magazine are included in the exhibition. Pictures of Monroe in a yellow bikini, and meeting the Queen are shown along with photographs taken by Cecil Beaton and a recently acquired photograph of British Pop artist Pauline Boty pictured in front of her painting of Monroe.

 

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
