Fun to behold and a great read. Warhol and Colacello are street smart and sharp as tacks.
An original silkscreen print Still Life: After the Party on Arches 88 Paper, 21.5″ x 30.5″ was included with Exposures by Interview magazine as a livres d’artiste.
This silkscreen print was auctioned for me by a leading auction gallery in Manhattan in 2005. Deviating from typical auction standards and practices, the Print Department did not want to include the book Exposures. The Art, Press & Illustrated Books department apologized for their oversight in 2015 and suggested that I sell it. (Documentation on this matter is available by request with mutual confidentiality).
