Lot Details

Warhol completed this stunning portrait of Grace Kelly only two years after she had died tragically of a stroke in 1982 at the age of 52. It was a fundraiser for the ICA - (the Institute of Contemporary Art) which was the university museum of Pennsylvania. Warhol always had a soft spot for the ICA. They hosted his first one-man solo show in 1965 which subsequently launched his career as a serious artist. Grace Kelly herself was born in Philadelphia, and her parents were both actively involved at the university - her mother was the first woman to head the Physical Education Department and her father was a gold medalist in sculling.

This impression has been in a private collection since the 1980s and is in excellent condition.
