This silkscreen print is based on a 1990 original of the same name (photographs and enamel paint on wood) that Blake created for a series:Â In Homage to Marilyn Monroe. Blake has taken the opportunity in the silkscreen both to lighten the band of colour (which is a dark purple in the early work) and to add diamond dust to Marilynâ€™s jewellery.
Unusually for a composition inspired by his pop art period, black is the colour that dominates. Indeed the only relief from what would otherwise be an entirely monochromatic piece is a violet band underneath the triple images of the actress.
