Wild Horses (The Misfits)

Wild Horses is based on John Huston's film The Misfits (1961), which dealt with the imminent disappearance of those quintessential icons, Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, "The American Cowboy", and the unblemished western frontier. In the painting Bombshell, Monroe who was once called "champagne on the screen" by Arthur Miller, The Misfits screenwriter and her husband at the time, is instead pictured in moments of emotional vulnerability.
