Andy Warhol, Self Portrait -Contemporary Art, Edition, Gift, Pop Art, Blue

2010

About the Item

ANDY WARHOL Blue Self Portrait Edition of 49 From Rosenthal Studio Line 51 x 51 cm (20.1 x 20.1 in.) Signed in glaze (fac-simile signature), numbered on the reverse on label In wooden box, accompanied by Certificate of Authenticity from the Rosenthal Studio in collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the visual Arts INC., New York. In excellent condition Framed Alongside Egon Schiele, Pablo Picasso and Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol is one of the great 20th Century master of the self-portrait. Warhol often resorted to make-up, wigs and even plastic surgery to disguise himself. This makes the self-portrait even more intriguing and engaging as viewers try to deconstruct the real Andy Warhol behind the shy and witty public persona. “Self Portrait, Blue” is based on a four-panel acrylic silk-screen in blue hues commissioned by Detroit collector Florence Barron in 1963, after the legendary dealer Ivan Karp, suggested to Warhol "You know, people want to see you. Your looks are responsible for a certain part of your fame - they feed the imagination". Barron had initially been taken to Warhol's studio to discuss the commission of her own portrait. However, in a brilliant reversal of the typical artist-patron relationship, Barron proposed instead that she would commission Warhol to paint his portrait for her - and to turn the icon-making apparatus of his Pop art vision on himself. Created at the prime of Warhol’s career, this self-portrait publicly documents, his self-transformation from commercial artist into the “Pope of Pop”. “When I did my self-portrait, I left all the pimples out because you always should. Pimples are a temporary condition and they don’t have anything to do with what you really look like. Always omit the blemishes – they’re not part of the good picture you want„ —Andy Warhol
