This is an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime, find! It is a background prop that was used in one of Elton John's 1970s concert tours. It is a large airbrush painting of Marilyn Monroe for his famous single, "Candle in the Wind". This song may have been the number one single of all time in the United States. He made a second version in 1997 which he sang at Princess Diana's funeral. What a great opportunity to own a backdrop for a song that was written about two such famous women! A celebrity movie star and a princess! As you can see from the photos it is very impressive! The previous owner used it as decoration for his high quality art deco booth at the top art and antique shows around the country.
Sir Elton John is an icon of the music industry and this Marilyn Monroe backdrop is an iconic image to his song, Candle in the Wind!
