Now, a new exhibition is heading to London and collects Warhol’s most memorable photographs. The new show will open at London’s Bastian Gallery in Mayfair from February 2nd until April 13th. Armed with more than 60 portrait and self-portrait Polaroid pictures taken by Warhol himself, the exhibition will also boast some previously unseen shots.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, given the hotbed of activity his New York factory studio was during the height of his fame, numerous images include some extremely well known faces. “My idea of a good picture is one that’s in focus and of a famous person doing something unfamous. It’s being in the right place at the wrong time,” Warhol famously once said.
The likes of John Lennon, artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, Liza Minnelli, Jane Fonda, David Hockney and fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent all feature in the new collection.
