Andre de Dienes Vintage Modernist Abstract Female Nude Behind Frosted GlassDouble Weight Silver Gelatin Vintage Print. Artist’s Stamp on Verso. 13.5 x 10.5 inches. André de Dienes was an American-Hungarian photographer best known for his famous portraits of the young model Norma Jean before she became Marilyn Monroe. The couple collaborated for nearly ten years, creating the most famous works of the photographer and the most significant images of the actress. Born Andor György Ikafalvi-Dienes on December 18, 1913 in Turia in Transylvania (now Romania), he worked in the editorial press after moving to Paris in 1933 to study art. He emigrated to the United States in 1938 and worked for Esquire, Vogue, Life and other publications. When not working as a fashion photographer, Dienes travelled the USA photographing Native American Culture, including the Apache, Hopi, and Navajo reservations and their inhabitants. Dissatisfied with his life as a fashion photographer in New York, Dienes moved to California in 1944 where he began to specialize in nudes and landscapes. As well as Monroe, Dienes also photographed such notable actors as Elizabeth Taylor, Marlon Brando, Henry Fonda, Shirley Temple, Ingrid Bergman, Ronald Reagan, Jane Russell, Anita Ekberg and Fred Astaire. His work on celebrity portraits allowed him to fund his experiments in photomontage and other more abstract works. De Dienes married twice, and died of cancer on April 11, 1985 in Hollywood at the age of 71. In the last two decades, Dienes’ photography has received overdue critical attention from a variety of sources. In 2002, Taschen published an 848-page two-volume monograph entitled Marilyn, noting “his original, inspired style” and how Dienes soon built up a huge portfolio of stunning photographs of the smiling brunette which helped to launch her model career and, a few years later, a film career that was to make her a legend.
