Andy Warhol, Ladies and Gentlemen, at Skarstedt Gallery [Photographs]
Andy Warhol, Ladies and Gentlemen, 1975. Photos: 16 Miles [more]
Warhol, cross-dressers, and his Polaroid Big Shot camera. His assistant Vincent Fremont: “Bob Colacello found most of them at a club called the Gilded Grape. After the photo session, I would hand the subjects a model release and a check and send them over to the bank.” The paint is super thick on a lot of these, similar to the 1978-79 Shadow paintings at Dia, though Warhol or his assistants seem to be working with a smaller brush here.
