Rare and Limited Edition Contemporary Art by Andy Warhol and Robert Longo Come to Sale with Dane Fine ArtAug 17, 2023 12:00 EDT
The oldest version of silk screenprinting gained popularity in China and Japan during the ancient period and the Middle Ages. The medium significantly transformed in the 20th century, when artists in New York started exploring it as a fresh form of creative expression. In the 1960s, Pop artists such as Andy Warhol used screenprinting to critique consumerism and capitalism. An original silkscreen on Lenox Museum Board by Warhol is a key highlight of the upcoming sale from Dane Fine Art. Titled Howdy Doody, it is published by Ronald Feldman Arts Inc. and belongs to a limited edition of 200. It depicts Howdy Doody, the eponymous marionette from the famous American children’s television program.
Another noteworthy work is Robert Longo’s Jules, a lithograph with embossment on paper from a rare edition of 45. It belongs to his 1980s Men in the Cities series. It portrays a man dressed in black and white in a dramatized posture with a contorted expression. The pose and attire are characteristic of his subjects depicted through this series, inspired by a still image from the movie The American Soldier.
