Catalogue Note

In 1988, Sotheby’s New York hosted one of the most talked-about auctions of the decade, the sale of the Estate of Andy Warhol.  In addition to paintings and sculpture, some of the most hotly sought-after items were Warhol’s personal effects, including decor, clothing, and even his 1974 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow.  The goal of the sale was to raise funds for the then-fledgling Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

Soon after Warhol’s death, photographer David Gamble was permitted access to Warhol’s East 66th Street apartment.  There, he captured the placement of Warhol’s belongings as the artist had lived with them over the years.  Rather than simply documenting the space, Gamble’s careful still-lifes capture the humanity and fierce individuality of the artist.
