Warhol, Andy. (1928-1987) & Basquiat, Jean-Michel. (1960-1988): Poster for Warhol/Basquiat Paintings – SIGNED BY BOTH

Warhol, Andy. (1928-1987) & Basquiat, Jean-Michel. (1960 – 1988)Poster for Warhol/Basquiat Paintings – SIGNED BY BOTH
Exhibition poster signed by both artists, from the exhibition at Tony Shafrazi Gallery, September/October 1985. Color printed poster depicting Warhol and Basquiat wearing boxing gloves after the photo by Michael Halsband, signed in black by each artist above their portrait. 19 x 12 inches (49 x 31 cm). Folds, a few ink smudges likely from original signing. Nicely and archivally framed in red and yellow.

A very rare dually-signed example of the original exhibition poster from this important gallery show featuring the now-iconic image of Warhol and Basquiat posing as boxers, designed as though advertising a bout. The show displayed the collaborative paintings Warhol and Basquiat worked on from 1984-1985. These works were the culmination of their friendship, one which began awkwardly in the late 70’s with the younger artist breathlessly hawking his postcard paintings to his idol. By 1983 through the intercession of Page Powell (Basquiat’s lover and Warhol’s friend) and Bruno Bischofberger (Warhol’s Swiss dealer) the two artists developed a friendship. During this time, Basquiat makes frequent appearances in Warhol’s diaries: traveling, exercising, and attending parties together. Eventually, the two began work on the paintings that would constitute the bulk of this exhibition.

It was Bischofberger who arranged for the works to be shown at the Tony Shafrazi Gallery in New York. Shafrazi had once been a graffiti artist himself, achieving his moment of notoriety in 1974 as the man who sprayed the foot-high words Kill Lies All on Picasso’s Guernica. But the process was not without conflict. Warhol, whose work ethic was legendary, grew frustrated with Basquiat’s erratic appearances and the two worked very little on these paintings at the same time.?

Billie Holiday Signed Album Cover -For Touching LP 1955

Presented for sale here is a rare Billie Holiday signed autographed album cover. Blue ink signature, it is inscribed in her own writing to “Tasso, stay as fine as you are Billie Holiday”.  The 1955 album was for “Music for Torching with Billie Holiday”.  The (33 1/3 RPM) record is still in the jacket in perfect condition. The autograph was obtained in 1957, by our consigner  two years before her death. There is another signature on the reverse of the album signed in blue ink by Carl Drinker. He was Billie Holliday’s jazz piano player that evening .Billie Holiday autographs are difficult to find and rarely come up for auction. Very few autographed signed albums exist in the market. Most of her signatures are found on photo’s.

Born Eleanora Holiday, the sultry singer took her stage name from Billie Dove, the silent screen star idolized by her mother. Holiday began her singing career in 1939, at the age of 17. From the time she made her first recordings with Benny Goodman in 1933, her popularity rose rapidly. Holiday performed in Europe and sang and recorded with some of the best Big Bands in the U.S., including Count Basie and Artie Shaw. In 1948, she performed her torchy ballads (“My Man”, “Mean to Me”, etc.) to a “standing room only” audience at New York’s Carnegie Hall. She died in 1959 at the age of 44.  The front cover lightly has wear at the  edges, otherwise fine condition.
