The Bastian Gallery in the heart of Mayfair has opened with an exhibition of over 60 polaroid pictures taken by Andy Warhol.
The photographs which are quite small 4.3″ x 3.4″ are preparatory works for Warhol’s silkscreen portraits. The majority feature easily recognisable famous celebrities among them David Hockney, Jane Fonda, and John Lennon in the 1970s and ’80s.
The Big Shot camera was an integral tool of Warhol’s from the early 1970s until his death in 1987. The photographs portray the beginnings of an era and society defined by image and illusion.
Forty six of the framed photographs are being sold as a collection. Also on sale is a coffee table book.
8 Davies Street, London W1K 3DW.
Open Tuesday to Saturday 10am – 6pm
Exhibition runs until 13 April, 2019
