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.” Victor Hugo himself appeared in a few of each. Warhol went on to create larger works of the silver gelatin photo series by stitching them together. Stamped on verso by Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and with archive reference number 00180. 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.

  • A Fishing Boat at Sea, Late Mid-Century Gouache on Paper
    Located in Cotignac, FR
    French gouache on paper of a boat travelling the seas. The work is unsigned but dated 22/11/70. Presented in simple gilt frame with handcut mount. A really engaging and powerful painting. The artist has managed to capture the swell of the sea, the movement of the boat listing gently to one side, the slightly rusty hull, the moody sky filled with all the seagulls following behind, which suggests it might be a fishing boat. They have used a limited but strong colour palette, blues, blacks and greys and then just to highlight and catch the eye a splash of green to represent the starboard or right bow light.
