Andy Warhol
Nude Male Model, Unique Silver Gelatin Print

1977

About the Item

Unique Silver Gelatin print from circa 1977 by Andy Warhol. Andy Warhol carried a camera with him obsessively. Similarly to his tape recorder, he used this technology not only as an artistic medium and a means of documenting his life, but also as a way of negotiating the world around him. ”I think everybody should be a machine,” he famously claimed, arguably preferring to mediate intimacy and social anxiety with his lens rather than embrace the unalloyed chaos which the emotional life of humans invariably entails. As a compulsive image-maker, he took endless photographs of the extraordinary individuals at the Factory with his many cameras, also using the Times Square photo booth as a way of making portraits. But while Warhol’s photography provides a fascinating visual account of the cultural milieu of mid century New York City, it’s also absolutely fundamental to his work as an artist. This work dates to the same period as his 'Sex Parts and Torsos' Series. Warhol's studio assistant Victor Hugo was responsible for recruiting subjects. According to Ronnie Cutrone, Hugo "would recruit people from the baths in those days. … The choreography was basically strip and make yourself comfortable." Warhol went on to create larger works of these silver gelatin photo series by stitching them together. Stamped on verso by Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and with archive reference number 00187. Full copy certificate from Christies London, in copy original sale cover and protective sleeve with lot label. Provenance: From the Estate of the Artist then to The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Christies London Sale 2808 13/06/13 part of lot 134 to the current owner.

  • Mid-Century Oil on Canvas. Harbour scene. Farewell to the Fishermen.
    Located in Cotignac, FR
    Mid 20th century oil on canvas of a crowded harbour scene, showing the local fisherman or sailors saying farewell to their families before going to sea. The painting is signed bottom right but the artist remains as yet unidentified. A colourful yet slightly brooding and dreamlike painting. The figures are faceless and the shapes loose and undefined reminiscent of the works by Balthus who in turn was influenced by LS Lowry and his scenes of industrial districts. The colours are deep and glowing and the shapes of the figures are rounded giving a sense of warmth and evoking the quality of light seen at either dawn or dusk. Balthasar Klossowski de Rola (February 29, 1908 – February 18, 2001), known as Balthus, was a Polish-French modern artist. He is known for his erotically charged images of pubescent girls, but also for the refined, dreamlike quality of his imagery. Lowry is famous for painting scenes of life in the industrial districts of North West England in the mid-20th century. He developed a distinctive style of painting and is best known for his urban landscapes peopled with human figures often referred to as "matchstick men".

  • Mermet. Mid-Century Design for a Sculpture.
    Located in Cotignac, FR
    A mid-century design for a sculpture, signed or titled Mermet bottom left corner. Presented in period metal frame. A very strong image which is almost certainly a design for a sculpture due to the three dimensional nature of the piece accentuated by the lines of the image extending beyond the subject itself showing the different planes to be worked. This extremely energetic and forceful application of the crayon and the extension of the lines is highly reminiscent of the work of the expressionist Bernard Buffet who lived and worked in Tourtour in the South of France. The angular features of the figure and the dark intense lines are particularly in line with the style of his work. Expressionism was a form of art less interested in the correct anatomical representation of the subject but more in portraying the feelings and emotions that the subject evoked. The model appears to be for a sculpture quite possibly inspired by African art as the image is reminiscent of African fetish...
