Pittsburg, 1928 - New York, 1987
Self Portrait - Fright Wig, 1986
Cellulose triacetate, 29 x 22,5 cm
Unique work. The acetate is taken from the Polaroid shot belonging to the Helyn and Ralf Goldenberg Collection, and created for the production of self-portrait serigraphs.
The small snapshots were the sketches of Warhol, his preparatory drawings, the base on which he would then make the largest and most famous works.
The paradox lies in the fact that the artist created reproductions and series when he used canvases and inks - silk-screen printing - while he produced unique pieces when he used the camera, the Polaroid.
