Analysis

It has been suggested that the relation between the left side of the canvas and the right side of the canvas is evocative of the relation between the celebrity's life and death.Helen Gardner, et al. Gardner's Art Through the Ages. Thompson Wadsworth, 2004. 1054.Carol Salus. "Behind the Celestial Enchantment". The Poetry of Life in Literature. Ed. Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka. Springer, 2000. 198. The work has received praise from writers such as American academic and cultural critic Camille Paglia, who wrote in 2012's Glittering Images lauding how it shows the "multiplicity of meanings" in Monroe's life and legacy.NEWS, Rosen, Gary, The Pagan Aesthetic,weblink The Wall Street Journal, July 17, 2014, October 16, 2014, In a December 2, 2004 article in The Guardian, the painting was named the third most influential piece of modern art in a survey of 500 artists, critics, and others.Charlotte Higgins.
