Chelsea Girls (Warhol)Price: £2,350 | Nominal size: UK DC - 20" x 30" | Grade: Near Mint on linen | Year: 1966
Note: Part art artefact and part movie poster, Alan Aldridge's iconic design for Andy Warhol's Chelsea Girls is possibly the most sought after art movie poster image of the late 60's, as it combines Warhol with swinging London. The poster was originally designed for the Arts Laboratory screening in London in 1968 and a small number were printed for flyposting. This led to police charges of indecency and it was promptly withdrawn. Despite this, it won the 1969 D&AD (Directors and Art Directors) silver award for most outstanding art poster of 1968. Only a handful of these are believed to have survived - one was bought for the Tate museum by British Heritage. It took till 1970 for Motif to print the full run and it is one of these that we have on offer today. Christies auctions have sold five of these Motif printings in the last five years for prices between £2,070 and £4,200 (average price was approximately £3,400). This copy was rolled prior to linen backing.
