“Marilyn Monroe – Fragile” Progression of A Portrait by Henryk Ptasiewicz

Henryk Ptasiewicz’ exhibit Celebrity at OA Gallery is alive and growing! Henryk recently added 8 new pieces to the display and has more which will be introduced in the next few weeks. One of those pieces is a portrait of Marilyn Monroe painted on glass.

Henryk is nearing completion of the initial painting stage, but he intends to break it later this week. Yes, break it! Henryk says that the broken glass alludes to the fact that she was one of the world’s most beautiful and desired women, but she was also a fragile and broken person — a classic and deeply tragic human dichotomy.


After the painting has been broken, Henryk plans to reassemble it and frame it in this beautiful frame.

The final piece will be available at OA Gallery. Sign up for our email notifications or follow us on Facebook to stay updated on the progress of this outstanding piece and others.
