MEDIUM: Fine Art Lithograph on Paper
IMAGE SIZE: 11" x 29"
EDITION SIZE: Unknown
ARTIST: Andy Warhol
DESCRIPTION: Tattoo Ladies served as Andy Warhol's calling card in 1955. He used this piece as his business card and he would fold it up and drop it off at advertising agencies that he was interested in working with. The woman's pin-up silhouette is filled with logos of companies he hoped to work for. In the center, we see the artist's old-fashioned NYC phone number and subsequent references to the Murray Hill neighborhood he lived in at the time. Not many Pop Art pieces are more iconic than this! This offset lithograph is printed with orange ink on green onion skin paper with horizontal folds. It measures 11 x 29 and is embossed in the lower left-hand corner with the Andy Warhol Art Authentication Board Inc. stamp and the Estate of Andy Warhol ink stamp. The piece comes matted and beautifully framed in a thick, heavy acrylic glass frame.
