Norma Jeane Mortenson was born on June 1, 1926 into a broken home in Los Angeles, California. She married three times, the first at just sixteen years of age. Her first husband, Jim Dougherty, was a neighbor. The marriage didn’t last long. After a brief stint as a model, Norma Jeane changed her name to Marilyn Monroe and had her first taste of Hollywood fame in The Asphalt Jungle (1950). FramedArt’s selection of Marilyn Monroe prints spans her career. No star has ever burned as brightly, before or since.

Tamara de Lempicka (1898-1980) was a leading artist of the Art Deco period. She was born in Warsaw, Poland and studied at Académie de la Grande Chaumière, as well as Académie Ranson in Paris, France. Her work, which was most popular prior to the end of World War II, melds cubist and neoclassical styles. She spent much of her life in the United States and passed away in Mexico, at the age of 81.
Tamara was best known for her portraits and nudes. As legend has it, she created her first portrait, a pastel drawing of her younger sister, at the age of ten. Jack Nicholson, Barbara Streisand, and Madonna are known to be collectors of her work.
Salvador Dali (1904-1989) made his mark on the world with his wild Surrealist paintings, which he described as “hand-painted dream photographs.” He is among the most instantly recognizable artists of the twentieth century, notorious not just for his work, but for his a one-of-a-kind persona and impeccably styled mustache.
