Andy Warhol Memorabilia: King of Pop Art, Master of His Own Domain

It would make sense that besides being one of the most prolific and iconic pioneers of modern art, Andy Warhol would have accumulated a lot of, for lack of a better term, stuff in his lifetime.

Andy Warhol Memorabilia

In 1988 an historic auction took place in New York City, as Sotheby’s amassed 10,000 items of Andy Warhol memorabilia from his personal collection.

We are excited to have had in a 2013 auction, two pocket watches personally owned by the famed Mr. Warhol —

Andy Warhol Art Deco Pocket Watch

The first is Andy Warhol’s art deco pocket watch — still fully functioning — 17-jewel-movement watch, gold plated, is engraved on the interior “E. Howard Watch Co. / Boston” and “Keystone Extra”.

The second is this Personally owned Andy Warhol “Elgin” silver pocket watch, again from his 1988 estate auction.

This item includes a color copy of the front page of the Sotheby’s catalog, as well as the lot listing. The catalog is in and of itself of value, as the 10-day auction of 10,000 items from his collection fetched $5.3 million, or more than twice Sotheby’s expectations.

It’s known that Warhol was a rampant shopper and collector, keeping all of his beloved curios in his apartment in uptown NYC. From 1974 on, he lived in a six-story townhouse with collections in boxes that he never unpacked. For the next 12 years (until his death last year), he continued to accumulate until only the kitchen and one bedroom functioned as anything other than storerooms.

His personal art collection at the time of auction is incredible: 1,659 pieces of Russel Wright pottery, 267 watches, 72 Navajo blankets and rugs, 61 lots of early 19th-Century American furniture, 37 Art Deco cigarette cases, 33 works by Man Ray, 18 by Marcel Duchamp, 12 Rauschenbergs.

Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to grasp
a lot about this, such as you wrote the e-book
in it or something. I believe that you simply can do with some percent to power
the message home a little bit, however other than that, this is fantastic
blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.
