      GRANT, ALLAN (1919-2008)
      Marilyn Monroe (contact sheet no. 12). Silver print, 16x20 inches (40.6x50.8 cm.), with Grant's signature, in ink, on recto and his signature, with the Life Photo hand stamp, in ink, on mount verso; with the original bill of sale from the photographer's studio on the back of the frame. 1962
      Estimate $2,000-3,000

      These images were apparently shot on July 9, 1962. Many credit Grant (as opposed to Bert Stern) with taking the last photographs of Marilyn in her Brentwood home. The pictures appeared in LIFE magazine's August 3, 1962 issue, two days before her death.
