Six Self Por­traits by Andy Warhol

Robb Report Singapore - - Auctions -

Com­pleted just months be­fore Andy Warhol’s sud­den death in 1987, this work is con­sid­ered a rare mas­ter­piece and one of his last great artis­tic ges­tures. Six dis­tinct vari­a­tions of his iconic 1986 ‘fright wig’ self-por­trait cre­ate a unique se­quence that takes on the grand tra­di­tion of self-de­pic­tion in an un­prece­dented man­ner. The stark, rar­efied ex­po­sures of the artist are thought to rep­re­sent Warhol’s most deeply per­sonal reve­la­tions.
