“I can’t just paint color so it looks nice on the wall. Colors are nice. But how do you get colors to speak to you visually...The application of pure pigments..getting the quality of the paint to be softer...(the process) is more than just something painted on a surface. It gives the quality of something that’s in the’s color, age and time. “

Bert Stern became the last photographer to do a professional shoot of Marilyn Monroe on June 21st 1962 at the Bel Air hotel. Bert spent the next five years pushing the limits of photography by experimenting with some of his most iconic black & white photographs of the twentieth century, turning Marilyn Monroe, twiggy, and other of his own B&W photographs into bright vibrant colorful images via SilkScreens and Serigraphs.

In 1961, Stanley Kubrick contacted Bert Stern and asked him to take pictures of Sue Lyon, the actress who played Lolita in the movie he had just completed. Bert had just read the book and came up with the idea of bringing Lolita to Sag Harbor for the shoot. He underlined quotes from the book and created one of the most quintessential images in the century of Lolita.
