I'm so happy to have been introduced to Collector's Weekly and was wondering if anyone might be familiar with a framed (print?) that I own. I've attached a photo of it: Marilyn Monroe on a circus elephant during her appearance in 1955 at Madison Square Garden. I have been told by somone who saw a photo of it that it is a "print" but nothing else. I was hoping someone might be more familiar with it or the individual who signed it. I purchased it approx. in the late '70's, early 80's in Queens, NY and have wondered about it ever since. I just love it but would like to know something about it, if anyone could help. Although a "print", it appears to have been painted(?) in spots as I can feel a "texture" to it and is signed by, I believe the first initial to be an H. H. Kennedy. It is framed and its size is approx. 14" x 17".
Thanks very much. I look forward to reading about the beautiful items others have shown on Collector's Weekly.

    I did a quick Google search of Marilyn & Madison Square Garden and came up with this: http://www.flickriver.com/photos/38934532@N04/3997437006/
    Interesting that the elephant's name was "Kanardy". Perhaps the elephant signed your picture, LOL! Also, maybe one of the photographers in the background is the one that snapped your photo! What fun!
