The Art of Marilyn Monroe

There have been many, many paintings done of Marilyn Monroe. But I wasn't aware that Monroe was, herself, an artist. She contributed the above sketch, described as being in the surrealist style, to an art exhibit in 1956. The organizer of the exhibit praised Monroe as "a midget picasso." Source: Newsweek - Nov 19, 1956.

I wouldn't go as far as the exhibit organizer in his praise, but it looks like she had a good eye for proportion and composition.
