New Andy Warhol original coming up for auction….Happy Birthday Andy!!!


First off  HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my favorite artist of all time Andy Warhol who would have been 85 years old on August 6th were he still alive. Sadly unlike Elvis, there appear to be no more Warhol sitings!

In this clip showing the grave of Andy Warhol watch as fans of the artist bring a perfect tribute to the artist. A can of soup!

A new found original work by Andy Warhol will be up for sale at the end of this month. The one of a kind Silkscreen is titled “Of Thee I Sing.”  The title is in reference to one of the artist’s celebrity friends fashion model and singer Nico also known as Christa Paffgen. The auction will be held on September 2 of 2013.

The work is a silkscreen printed on paper that was made specifically for Warhol. The work was bought in the 1960s and 1970s and kept in a private collection.

Below is one of Andy Warhol’s screen tests of Nico. Nico was the first IT girl of the Warhol bunch, to be followed by Edie Sedgwick, covered here previously.

Thanks again Andy for all your contributions to the art world and of course for the Andy Warhol Foundation, a helpful part of so many working artists!
