About

Andy Warhol's Medicine Cabinet East 66th Street NYC 1987 6x7 Format Film Archival Inkjet on Paper *Also available on Aluminum. Please inquire regarding sizing and prices* Available sizes: 24 x 20 inches Edition size: 10 27 x 33 inches Edition size: 6 Signed, titled, dated, and annotated in ink on the reverse, 1988, printed later; accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity, signed and dated in ink. A print of this image of Warhol’s medicine cabinet, filled with prescription drugs and personal hygiene products, was included in the 2012 exhibition 'Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years' at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. There is another print in the collection of The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. Andy Warhol’s Medicine Cabinet is today an important historical document and artifact in its own right. Carefully composed and impeccably executed, Gamble’s image provides a rare opportunity to piece together fragments of Warhol’s notoriously reserved persona. Andy Warhol’s Medicine Cabinet has been hailed the most original and intimate portrait of one of the most important artists in the history of art. Proof of its artistic value came in April 2018 as one print of the image almost trebled its original estimated value at a Sotheby’s auction. This demonstrates that Gamble’s photographs are exceptional artworks worthy of the most illustrious collections. “There is something hypnotic about a stocked medicine cabinet. What a person keeps tells such a story. This David Gamble image of Warhol’s medicine cabinet tells more about that iconoclastic artist- his obsessions, his hoarding, his collecting, his beauty addiction- than any interview ever could.” Pat MCgrath - 2018 About the artist: David Gamble is a multidisciplinary artist from London, now based in New Orleans. His body of work consists of paintings, works on paper, and photographs, all of which have been exhibited globally. Throughout the 1980s and '90s, Gamble worked as one of the foremost international editorial photographers for publications such as The Observer, The Independent, LIFE, Fortune, The New Yorker, Newsweek, Paris Match, The Sunday Times, and many more. Over his decades-long career spanning the editorial, journalistic, and fine art realms, Gamble has photographed such illustrious figures as Stephen Hawking and the Dalai Lama with several of his portraits included in the permanent collections of the National Portrait Gallery in London and the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. In 1987, Gamble won the Kodak Award for Best Photographer in Europe as well as a World Press Photo Award in 1988 for his portrait of Stephen Hawking, which was featured as the notable cover of Hawking’s A Brief History of Time. In 1988 Sotheby’s New York hosted one of the most talked-about auctions of the decade, the sale of the Estate of Andy Warhol. In addition to paintings and sculpture, some of the most hotly sought- after items were Warhol’s personal effects, including, décor, clothing, and even his 1974 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. The goal of the sale was to raise funds for the then fledgling Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Soon after Warhol’s death photographer David Gamble was permitted access to Warhol’s East 66th street House, Factory and Warehouse. There, he captured the placement of Warhol’s belongings as the artist had lived with them over the years. Rather than simply documenting the space, Gamble’s careful still-lifes capture the humanity and fierce individuality of the artist.
