Marilyn Monroe (1926 – 1962) was an American actress, model, and singer, a globally recognized goddess and still one of the most beautiful women in the world. Famous for playing comic “blonde bombshell” characters, Marilyn became one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s and was emblematic of the era’s attitudes towards sexuality. Her soft deep voice still echoes “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”. This painting is the artist’s introspective into the mysterious legacy of this glamorous American icon and her contribution to female sexual revolution.
This portrait of Marilyn Monroe makes a statement, measuring 4′ x 5′, this oil painting is bold and alluring, with reds and golds accentuating stars’ charm and beauty. This is a very special painting for Tatyana, as a first Celebrity Portrait she has ever done on such a large scale and it took 5 months to complete. This painting features a very unique painting technique of layering multiple glazes of egg tempera, acrylic paint and oil paint to achieve the most brilliant deep reds. The energy of red and Marilyn’s magnetism create suspense and romantic charge, similar to falling in love. This luxurious painting is lavishly embellished Swarovski crystals, glitter and genuine gemstones. The accents are sparkling with numerous genuine faceted diamonds, rubies and gold leaf, making it a true conversation piece.
This original, one-of-a-kind embellished oil painting on canvas was Tatyana’s first celebrity portrait oil painting. It is hand signed by the artist on the front and accompanied by a signed Certificate of Authenticity.
“It was tedious and experimental, exciting and exhausting. I definitely was in love with life when I was working on this piece… I know it will not leave you indifferent!” – Tatyana
