Lot Details

Warhol's screenprint "Turtle 1985" was published to "coincide with the 1985 film `Turtle Diary' written by Harold Pinter." See Andy Warhol Prints, 4th Edition by Feldman and Schellmann at p.148. The work is in excellent condition. It was published by CBS, Inc, Los Angeles. The printer was Rupert Jason Smith.
The work is framed between two sheets of glass as pictured, which has preserved the print very well, although the outer molding should be replaced (see Photo).
