About the Item

HUNT SLONEM A Duck to Remember Your House By (inscribed and signed three times to Andy Warhol's friend Monique Van Vooren), 1991-2011 Watercolor on Paper Hand signed and dated recto, signed again verso; inscribed "Monique, a duck to remember your house by.Thank you for the birthday Love Hunt 2011" Unique work Frame included: held in the original artist's vintage wood frame Measurements: Framed: 12.5" x 10.5" x .5" Unframed 9.75" x 8" This work is hand signed three times by Hunt Slonem: once on the recto, once on the verso, and once following the written inscription. Provenance is impeccable as this cherished gift from Hunt Slonem was acquired from the estate of the actress and socialite Monique Van Vooren. The work was painted in 1991 (and dated 1991 on the recto), and was gifted by the artist to Monique in 2011, bearing a dated dedication verso. Monique Van Vooren (1927-2020) was a film and stage actress who enjoyed a long career with diverse roles ranging from the 1960s television series Batman to Andy Warhol’s Frankenstein and Oliver Stone’s Wall Street. Belgian-born and a champion ice skater and beauty queen in her youth, Van Vooren arrived in New York in 1950 to study philosophy on a Fulbright scholarship. Outside of her acting career, Van Vooren recorded the album Mink in Hi-Fi in 1958 and published the novel Night Sanctuary In 1983. But it was through her circle of friends that many came to know Monique Van Vooren. Warhol devoted a chapter in 1979's Exposures to Monique Van Vooren and her great friend Sylvia Miles, memorably writing: "Monique lives on the East Side in a white brick high-rise with lots of doormen and closed-circuit TV. She has a four-and-a-half room apartment covered in zebra skin rugs and wallpapered with photographs of herself with famous men. Monique and Nureyev. Monique and Erik Bruhn. Monique and Valentino. There's a signed photograph of JFK on her baby grand piano. There's a mirror over her bed." Warhol cast Van Vooren as Baroness Frankenstein in his 1973 adaptation Andy Warhol’s Frankenstein, now a cult classic, directed by Paul Morrissey and starring Udo Kier and Joe Dallesandro. Warhol and Van Vooren would be photographed dozens of times together in the 1970s and 80s. See Andy Warhol, Exposures, Grosset & Dunlap, 1979, p. 176 More about Hunt Slonem: Hunt Slonem is an American painter whose work uniquely combines representational imagery with Abstract Expressionist renderings. Best known for his colorful paintings of tropical birds, butterflies, and rabbits, he is considered an integral member of the Neo-Expressionist movement of which Julian Schnabel and Georg Baselitz are also members. Slonem’s playful paintings often depict multiples of the same subject in a loosely composed grid, rendered with gestural brushstrokes and a witty sense of humor. Born on July 18, 1951 in Kittery, ME, Slonem went on to receive a BA in art and art history at Tulane University in New Orleans, and later attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine alongside Alex Katz and Alice Neel. Slonem’s work is in the collections of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, among others. He lives and works in New York, NY.

    By Tom Judd
    Located in New York, NY
    Tom Judd Casey (for the "Patrick Eddington Cat Project), 2000 Acrylic, Mixed Media and Metal painting on board Signed and dated in pencil on the front 12 × 10 1/2 inches This is a unique painting Tom Judd Biography This is a lovely mixed media painting by popular Philadelphia based artist, Tom Judd. Provenance: Estate of Patrick Eddington. Patrick Eddington was a Utah school teacher who had the improbable idea of writing to his favorite artists and asking them to draw or paint pictures of cats. “This project is a labor of love," Eddington wrote of his endeavor in a 2004 letter. “It will culminate as a large book and traveling exhibition. It will also help Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. I’ve asked individuals I admire to create cat-related works. They are not the typical cat images but creative works.” Patrick Eddington passed away in early 2016 and his vision was, unfortunately, never realized. Nonetheless, artists like Keith Haring, Joel Peter Witkin...
