Norma Jean

Years after her death, the glamour of Marilyn Monroe still hasn't faded. Previously unseen collections of photos of the star fetch good prices when they come up for sale or are published in books. She was still young Norma Jean when she posed for this painting by Earl Moran. The work caused fierce bidding when it came up for sale at Heritage Auctions in Beverly Hills a week ago. It sold for $83,650 (£51,494), more than seven times the pre-sale estimate, and almost doubled Moran's record at auction.
