Lot Notes

According to the Rosenthal company: "The link between Rosenthal and Warhol has already existed for decades: in 1980, Warhol visited Rosenthal in Selb with his gallery owner Hans Mayer and his manager Fred Hughes to paint Philip Rosenthal’s portrait. Warhol was inspired by the visit at Rosenthal, particularly by the atmosphere in Erkersreuth Castle. The later portrait showing Philip Rosenthal originated in Warhol’s New Yorker studio <> in accord with the Polaroids taken in the castle. To mark the tribute to Philip Rosenthal, it was transposed onto porcelain for the first time. [..] Philip Rosenthal began his avant-garde collection at the end of the fifties with the idea of bringing contemporary art and table culture together."

Throughout Warhol’s career his own self-image is perhaps the most pervasive, both those of his own creation and those other photographers snapped; each portrait revealing the shifting moods and looks of different decades. The performative and photobooth-style self portraits of the 1960s gave way to other explorations of self in the 70s and 80s. "Like I always wanted Tab Hunter to play me in a story of my life--people would be much happier imagining that I was as handsome as Allen [Midgette] and Tab were", the artist declared.
