Hotshots, limos, organizations … Andy Warhol’s life exposed in unseen likeness
Book and exhibit will be followed by digitisation of papa masters photographs, leaving public access to astonishing visual diary
Tens of thousands of unpublished draws taken by Andy Warhol of luminary sidekicks such as Liza Minnelli, Bianca Jagger and Debbie Harry are to be made public for the first time in what is described as an unparalleled collecting of his photography.
More than 130,000 individual frames have been made available by the Andy Warhol Foundation for a forthcoming book, expo and the digitisation for members of the public of every single persona- most of which have not been realized before. Commemorates on 3,600 contact sheets show that Warhol published simply 17% of his photographs.
Spanning 11 times leading up to the artist’s death in 1987, the personas open doors to both his dazzling social curve and his private world-wide. In one photo, the writer Truman Capote is testify unfolding out on a couch. In a series of hundreds of drawings capturing an unfolding woo, Jon Gould, Warhol’s last lover, is shown on the beach, in the snowfall and on a boat.
The Contact Warhol is planning to shape the photographs available for purposes of public deeming presided over by Peggy Phelan and Richard Meyer, arts profs at Stanford University, California, which acquired the archive from the Warhol Foundation.
