  • In "The Red Sweater Sitting," Marilyn Monroe animates a couple of sweaters that Milton's wife Amy chose for her at a local boutique. Milton photographed Marilyn in the studio attached to his converted Connecticut barn in February of 1955. An image from this sitting graces the cover of the second release of The Archives' best-selling book _Milton's Marilyn_. 

Milton loved working with sweaters. He often brought them with him to the sittings. His theory was: when you take away the fancy dress or perfect suit and put the subject in a sweater, then any resistance would vanish. This allowed him to could get down to the essence of his subject. In a way, it made Milton's job easier.Pin_it_button
