An online company will hold a special sale of photographs of the screen legend Marilyn Monroe which chronicle her path from the early days in the industry through the height of fame to her untimely death.

The auction, held by artnet Online Auctions from February 10-24, features 60 photographs of Marilyn Monroe taken by renowned photographers including Bert Stern, George Barris, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Ken Galente and George Zimbel.

In what is bound to be a treat for her devout fans, the collection includes nine limited edition prints from Monroe''s last session with Bert Stern in 1962 for Vogue known as The Last Sitting.

Other works capture the actress on her honeymoon with Joe DiMaggio in 1954, enjoying the surf in Santa Monica, as well as still shots from The Seven Year Itch.

Marilyn Monroe, born Norma Jean Baker on June 1, 1926, is considered one of the greatest stars in the history of American cinema. She died prematurely on August 5, 1962 of an apparent sleeping pills overdose, though the cause of her death has remained disputed ever since.

Price estimates for the auction range between $500 and $30,000.
