Andy Warhol: Private and Public in 151 PhotographsReva Wolf, ed. / designed by Lauren GoldblumState University of New York Press / 2010 / out of print / first edition / paperback / 5 x 8 in / 122 pp / color / eng / ISBN: 9780615348247 / weight: 8.5 ozCondition: very good, faint smudge on front and back cover, interior clean and unmarkedDescription:This catalog for a 2010 exhibition at The Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art focuses on 151 color and black and white Polaroids donated to the museum by The Andy Warhol Foundation. Shot over the fifteen-year period from 1970 to 1986, the Polaroids serve as a departure point for an examination of the interplay of public and private life in Warhol’s work. The book features many rarely seen images that remained in Warhol’s possession up to his 1987 death, including shots of his friend Jean-Michel Basquiat, boyfriend Jon Gould, fashion editor Diana Vreeland, art critic Henry Geldzahler, and (interestingly) landscapes in Aspen, Colorado. Essays on the role of photography in Warhol’s work shed light on this underexplored corner of the artist’s vast archive.
