Shoes

Andy Warhol

The subject of shoes recurs frequently in Warhol's work, and has its roots in his advertising work for women's footwear from the 1950s, which were widely recognised. By the 1980s, Warhol had embarked on a techique of incorporating diamond dust (the factory floor by-product of the making of industrial grade diamonds) with his screenprinted images. The vibrant sparkle of the finish provided the glamour with which he sought to inform these works, arrangements of shoes which have traditional still life as their inspiration.

This copy of F&S II.253 is in absolutely pristine condition, and retains its diamond dust completely, which is increasingly rare to find.
