For your consideration, an original preliminary painting by Earl Moran. Before a painting is considered, a preliminary would be presented to the art director at Brown & Bigelow for approval. This model is Marilyn Monroe. The preliminary was accepted, (says ok, in pencil at the lower left corner), and published on the February 1950 page. With Marilyn standing in her panties, covering her breasts as she looks surprised to see someone.
Measures 8 x 10, oil on masonite, in great condition. At the upper right, the original thought of a verse, Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard to get her daughter a dress. When she got there, the cupboard was bare and so was her daughter, I guess. The preliminary came from the estate of Earl Moran.Calendar page is not included in the listing, just wanted to show it was a published piece.
