Lot description
Certificate of Provenance provided.

Polaroid measures 4.25 x 3.38 inches (10.8 x 8.6 cm), and is framed to museum standards in a handmade frame with dimensions of 11.44 x 10.3 inches (29.1 x 26.2 cm).

This unique Polaroid depicts a bust of Leonardo da Vinci that was in Andy Warhol's Factory at 860 Broadway in New York, and was featured in numerous shots of the space. This is one of the few Polaroids that was initialed by Warhol.

The photographic medium was critical to Warhol’s artistic production. He appropriated newspaper images, advertising, film stills, and celebrity portraits to create his silkscreened paintings and prints, while he was also a filmmaker and photographer in his own right. He created extensive bodies of work with the photobooth portrait and the polaroid. The camera was constantly at hand, mediating between himself and the world, and the archive of images he produced in an endless stream served as a visual diary and source book.
