“For me a photograph is most successful when it doesn’t answer all the questions”
– Greg Gorman
LARGE PORTRAIT OF WARHOL. SIGNED BY THE ARTIST. NO. 24 OF 25.
One of Gorman’s most iconic images, demonstrating his mastery of light and shadow, is his portrait of Andy Warhol. Taken one year before Warhol’s death in 1987, the image captures a side of him not often seen, an austere and slightly more intimidating appearance. But with the invariable shock of white hair, it is immediately recognisable as Andy.
From an edition of 25, this large-format 23 x 18.75 in portrait (as opposed to smaller editions of 19 x 15 in and 14 x 11 in) is signed, dated and numbered by Gorman on the reverse.
