Marilyn Monroe by Cecil Beaton, 1956 Courtesy Sotheby's Beaton's images were known for elegance, style and glamour. This image represents the beauty and gentleness of women. The soft contrast and soft focus creates a desirable effect. By photographing this as a birds eye view Beaton is enhancing the vulnerability Monroe is portraying. Beaton has captured a questioning look which adds to the mystery of Marilyn Monroe.
