Lot description
Elizabeth Taylor was one of Warhol's greatest muses. With Warhol's fascination with celebrity, tragedy, glamour, and beautiful women, it is no wonder he was drawn to the enigmatic Elizabeth Taylor. Art critic Jerry Saltz wrote, "In Warhol’s pictures of Taylor lurk her tragic sexuality, tragicomic survival, excess, and ridiculous love. Also in there somewhere is the future hero of gay rights—a commando monarch dynamo in the battle against AIDS. Warhol’s work and Liz exist in some supernal realm beyond reason. Both of them make you feel like art can change the world."
