Lot Details

Warhol's interest in Dracula can be dated to 1974 when he produced a film entitled "Blood for Dracula" directed by Paul Morrissey. The film is a witty spoof on the various Dracula tropes interspersed with homoerotic sex and outrageous violence. It has become a cult classic. In 1981 Warhol embarked on the "Myths" portfolio and included Dracula. It has been written that the "Myths" prints all contain some facet of Warhol's personality. With his very pale skin and night owl habits he looked like a vampire and was affectionately called "Drella" by his friends - combining the words Dracula and Cinderella.

This is a unique trial proof, aside from the edition of 200 plus 30 TP, 30 AP, 5 PP, and 5 EP. This print comes framed as shown in a Plexi box.
