event | Marilyn Monroe Red Velvet & Golden Dreams Exhibition
Mar 26, 2019 - Apr 07, 2019
The Lexington Hotel in New York City, in collaboration with Linda Goldenstein, owner of Goldenstein Gallery, announces the arrival of the "Red Velvet & Golden Dreams" Exhibit. This exhibiting collection features rare color separations of Marilyn Monroe from 1950, which will be on display in the “Norma Jeane Suite,” where Monroe herself once lived. Valued at over $4 million, the collection will be showing exclusively at The Lexington Hotel for a limited time from March 26 to April 7, 2019 by appointment only, along with additional pinup calendars and memorabilia.
The “Golden Dreams” Color Separation Collection includes 21 original large format film positives and negatives created in 1950 by the John Baumgarth Company to produce Monroe’s “Golden Dreams” calendars. These films were created through a labor-intensive process known as the “indirect separation” process, which involved multiple stages of photo development and refinement and many hand corrections to obtain the desired results. The collection has museum-quality archival acrylic mounting, as pictured to the left. The Collection is available to collect (or purchase).
