Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol signed and donated a photo album to Moderna Museet in 1968, in connection with his first solo exhibition, curated by Pontus Hultén. Seven posters, which are now classics, were also produced for the exhibition, featuring quotes by Warhol.

The album consists of two volumes containing several hundred black-and-white photos from Andy Warhol’s life in the second half of the 1960s. The people in the pictures include Ingrid Superstar, Viva, Gerard Malanga, International Velvet, Nico, Ondine, Taylor Mead, Edie Sedgwick, Billy Name, Valerie Solanas and Henry Geldzahler. The two volumes can be divided into three sections. The first documents Andy Warhol’s output, photographed by Rudolph Burckhardt, Eric Pollitzer and John D. Schiff. The other two sections consist of pictures by the photographers Billy Names and Stephen Shores from the making of the films and life at The Factory.
