Marylin Monroe is not just a sultry actress, she was talented in other art forms as this portrait proves.
An exhibition, curated by Whoopi Goldberg and titled 'Marilyn: Character Not Image' seeks to create a bigger picture of one of the most popular Hollywood stars.
Thus, the exhibition will feature not only her photos, her clothing, her poetry, and her artwork.
Marilyn Monroe made a drawing titled 'lover watching his love sleep' in the late 1950s. The sketch was created with Conté crayon on paper.
The artwork shows a woman who is fully unclothed lying down leisurely as her fascinated lover watches her.
This woman depicted may have been Monroe herself- or not. While the drawing is simple, it is powerful because of its aesthetic qualities.
Apart from the drawing, other objects, photos and video footage of the icon will be displayed at the exhibition, showing largely unseen dimensions of the beautiful superstar.
