Milton H. Greene
American, 1922-1985

Milton H. Greene (American, 1922–1985) was a photographer best known for his portraits of Marilyn Monroe. Born in New York, Greene started his career as an apprentice to photojournalist Eliot Elisofon (American, 1911–1973) and fashion photographer Louise Dahl-Wolfe (American, 1895–1989). During the 1950s and 1960s, Greene worked for several publications, including Life, Harper’s Bazaar, Town & Country, and Vogue. His subjects spanned the worlds of high fashion, film, music, and art, and included figures such as Andy Warhol (American, 1928–1987), Grace Kelly, Dizzy Gillespie, and Frank Sinatra. Greene began working with Marilyn Monroe on an assignment for Look magazine. While Monroe lived with Greene and his family in their farmhouse in Connecticut, Greene photographed Monroe in 52 sessions, including the Black Sitting. Monroe and Greene also collaborated on producing films such as Bus Stop (1956) and The Prince and the Showgirl(1957). He has received awards from the Art Director’s Club of New York and the American Institute of Graphic Arts. His work has been exhibited at the International Center of Photography in New York, the Chicago Art Institute, and the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. - artnet
