The Frank Worth Collection


The extra-ordinary Frank Worth Collection showcases some of the most prolific images of the Golden Era of Hollywood; the collection consists of outstanding and candid images by Frank Worth - pictures of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, his friend James Dean and many other film stars.

Following Frank's death in 2000, the collection has been steadily restored to reveal some of the most iconic images of all time. The majority of the photographs reflect the nostalgia of the 1950s and 60s.

Frank was a close friend of the stars and had close relationships with Jayne Mansfield and in particular with Marilyn Monroe, who allowed him to shoot the iconic photograph of Marilyn with her dress blowing up. The collection is filled with highly personal shots by Frank which reflects their intimate relationship.
