Scarce sold out true First Edition square softcover catalogue with stiff wraps of the historic Andy Warhol retrospective at the Tate Gallery in 1971 (17 February - 28 March). This volume is 100 pages and is profusely illustrated with text by Richard Morphet. This IMPORTANT retrospective - planned in the Sixties and realized in 1971, at the height of Warhol's fame, and in his lifetime - was one of the most important and touted shows of the era. It features his most iconic works from the Sixties, including Marilyn, 1964 (front cover) and Liz (1963) back cover, along with Campbell's Soup Cans, Elvis, Jackie, Electric Chairs and car crashes. This is a well known, long sold out and out of print, and now very scarce publication. At the end of this volume is a Checklist of the 123 Works in the exhibition, along with the 59 works reproduced, but not in the exhibition, as well as a list of lenders - people like Mr. and Mrs. Roy Lichtenstein, the Sidney Janis Gallery, Ileanna Sonnabend, Robert Rauschenberg, Mr. and Mrs. Burton Tremaine, etc. The Checklist of all 59 Works in the exhibition is on pink cardstock paper.
