Description

:

18 offset lithographs on wove paper hand coloured by Warhol and friends with Dr. Martina's aniline watercolor dye. Issued as a portfolio of 17 unbound sheets enclosed in the printed covers. Warhola's mother, Julia Warhola did the calligraphy. While the captions are printed in Julia Warhola's distinctive hand, the title on the cover is hand-written in ink and reads 'La Pecherche [sic] du Shoe Perdu'. This mistake may indicate that this particular portfolio is one of the earlier ones Warhola titled. The lithographs were privately printed in New York and the sheets then hand-coloured using Dr. Martina's aniline watercolor dye by Warhol and his friends at his 'colouring parties'. This portfolio also contains one extra double sized illustration of a boot with no caption (a boot of the same style was used by Warhol for a separate work, 'Gee, Merrie Shoes' for an exhibition at the Bodley Gallery in New York the following year).
This delightful portfolio is rare as not all surviving portfolios have a complete set of all the plates, and many do not include the larger boot plate
