ON SHOW: THE LOST WARHOLS

back to list

“My love affair with Andy Warhol really started once I found those negatives.” In 1982, a 19-year-old film student by the name of Karen Bystedt cold-called Andy Warhol to ask if he would sit for a portrait session. By some stroke of luck, the art world legend agreed. Two photographs captured during the session were published in Bystedt’s 1983 book Not Just Another Pretty Face, and the rest were packed away, forgotten.

After years of being “lost,” 10 of the 36 images—the majority of the negatives were damaged beyond repair—have been salvaged, restored (pixel by pixel), and reimagined by various artists including neo-pop artist Peter Tunney. The resulting series, orchestrated by Bystedt, brings together a cohesive collection of 66 artworks that integrate one of the 10 never-before-seen portraits of Warhol offering a new perspective of the pop art icon as seen through the eyes of each participating artist.

The Lost Warhols will be on show during New York Fashion Week, September 6 – 10, for Art Hearts Fashion at the Angel Orensanz Center at 172 Norfolk Street, presented by Six Summit Gallery.
