During their photoshoot, Warhol took 36 Polaroids of Iris, three of which he went on to use for 26 paintings and the Ladies and Gentlemen portfolio. This black and white screenprint is a trial proof before the edition of 125 in colors. While Iris did not sign her Polaroids, she has been identified by Corey Tippin, who was part of the Warhol scene in the early 1970s and knew Iris personally. We know very little about Iris’s life. She may have moved to Paris in 1977.
