Interview: Holly Solomon On Warhol

Description

Christie's is delighted to offer Andy Warhol's iconic portrait of the pioneering New York gallery owner Holly Solomon. His trademark use of the photo booth snapshots as his source material allowed him to mix together elements of high and low art. Made up of nine vividly colored panels, this is one of the most celebrated works in the artist's series of silkscreen portraits of art world figures and movie stars of the 1960s. Before her passing, SoHo gallery pioneer Holly Solomon talked with Christie's specialist in August 2001 in a very intimate and poignant discussion about her experiences with Andy Warhol and Gordon Matta-Clark.
