Marilyn (Announcement)

Color offset lithograph on smooth wove paper with printed text verso.

note:
Andy Warhol's love of repetition was shared by Bob Morrison, who acquired multiple versions, and even duplicates prints, of works depicting one of the artist's favorite muses, Marilyn Monroe. Bob displayed nearly all them all in his dining room. Nestled tightly on shelves amongst pewter platters and antique brass candlesticks were Marilyn Monroe invitations, announcements, screenprints, greeting cards and other printed ephemera. The present work is one of five copies of Castelli Graphics' announcement for a 1981 retrospective; two of which are signed (lots 54 and 55) and three of which are unsigned (lot 57-59).
