Unique color polaroid (Polacolor type 108) signed "Andy" with black felt pen. Ca. 1977. Blind stamped lower right ANDY WARHOL with the studio stamp used at the time. Very few polaroids are signed. This polaroid was given to the model by Warhol and subsequently signed.
4 ¼ x 3 3/8 in. Fixed to board and matted. Framed. OK condition for a almost 40 years old polaroid. Some stains here and there.
Similar polaroid of the same male nude with hands bound by gaffatape was sold recently at Christies.
“Victor [Hugo] came down with a nude pose-er. I’m having boys come and model nude for photos for the new paintings I’m doing. But I shouldn’t call them nudes. It should be something more artistic. Like ‘Landscapes.’ Landscapes.” (A. Warhol, quoted in P. Hackett, The Andy Warhol Diaries, New York, 1989, pg. 32)
