  1. I have a rare print signed by Bert Stern of Marilyn Monroe. It comes from the Last Sitting collection and is a 36″x36″ framed print. It is a head shot..looks like it might have been cropped from a larger photo and is a limited edition with 69/100 in bottomleft corner. I am trying to find an appraisal for it as I am looking to sell it. Can you point me in the right direction please? thank you kindly
