Fashion | Jewelry | 20th C. Dec. Arts
Perhaps our strongest fashion sale to date! The fashion in this sale comes from several magnificent collections and collectors, including that of Amy Greene. As reported in the Hollywood reporter, regarding the film Love Marilyn: 'Greene, 83, was one of Monroe's closest friends and confidantes. She was the Cuban model-turned-housewife of Milton Greene, a celebrity photographer who first photographed Monroe in 1953; hit it off with her; and had her as his and Amy's houseguest at their home in Weston, Connecticut, where they lived with their infant son, for four years (1954-1957) while Monroe, at the height of her fame, took a hiatus from living and working in Hollywood, and eventually returned on her own terms, as the co-chief -- with Milton -- of her own production company, Marilyn Monroe Productions. The 20th Century Decorative arts come from a wide variety of collections, and feature works created by top designers as well as wonderfully decorative period discoveries.
