New York Yankee’s superstar Joe Di Maggio and Marilyn Monroe were married on January 14, 1954.
The newlyweds flew to Japan for their honeymoon on Pan American Airlines where Kashio Aoki, the official steward for precious cargo, shot the only photos of the famous couple aboard that flight, as no press or cameras were allowed onboard.
Aoki kept the photos private for 46 years before deciding to share them with the world and publish the works with re-known art publisher Edward Weston in 2001 in a limited edition of 75 to commemorate the 75th Birthday of Marilyn Monroe.
When the two came off the plane they were greeted by over 250 journalist and paparazzi.
According to DiMaggio, “he had never seen so much excitement, or heard a roar so loud, not even when the Yankees won the World Series”.
Trevor Victor Harvey Gallery cordially invites you to ‘Diamonds and Champagne’, the launch of Marilyn – The 90th Birthday Touring Exhibition. On display includes work by George Barris, Bert Stern, … read more →
Zhu Peihong "My Space" @ MOSMAN, Friday 9-29 March, 2018
"'My space' is in such a state: express “the reality I realized”, and reality exist through consciousness, saying, paintings let the invisible become visible, rather than the visible reproduced. When I paint, I lie my work on a table, the process is like drawing a Chinese painting, not an oil painting. Different pigments will wait to dry on the canvas, drawing over and over for a long time until accomplished. The indefinite extension of the painting process blurs the boundary of the beginning and the end of the creation. Which brings a very subtle experience, and result in a quite different appearance compared to other works. During the 8 years, after several changes and advances, I have broken the spatial relationship of painting, and broken through the limitations of two-dimensional canvas. I use ready-made product, pigment, spirited strokes to create a vital space.” - Zhu Peihong
