ANDY WARHOL (several works in the collection)
Some Men Need Help, oil on panel, original – 1982, certified
Few know that beside his many silk-screen prints with ink and acrylic on canvas and paper, Andy Warhol also designed special posters. This oeuvre is rare and mainly consists of colourful silkscreen collages.
The artwork depicted above, portrays Philip Bosco and Treat Williams in the play ‘Some Men Need Help’, New York 28th October 1982. With the same protagonists Andy Warhol created, as usual, several more collages – each time different and unique works. These artworks exist of many colour fields that melt into each other like rainbows and many expressive contour lines flow over the portraits. The collages of the 1980s are among his most refined screen prints in his entire oeuvre.
