Why, in your opinion, are images of Marilyn Monroe and Liz Taylor so common in fine art and pop art?
And not just Andy Warhol either, or even just people imitating Andy Warhol! I was at the Armory Show, and there were a huge number of pieces featuring the two, from Warhol-type paintings and prints to Katy Grannan photos of an aging woman dressed like Monroe. What is it about them that makes them so prevalent?
