Lot Details

Lot 1126
HARRY SHUNK and JANOS KENDER Andy Warhol and Brigid Berlin.
Vintage gelatin silver print, circa 1969, 8 x 10 inches (20.5 x 25 cm), with the Shunk-Kender hand-stamp to the verso, the black rectangular area at center likely superimposed in the negative. Two retouched spots, some minor surface wear.

An unusual photograph from the inimitable collaboration of Harry Shunk and János Kender. The photograph depicts Brigid Berlin leaning over while simulating felatio on Warhol, who stands, Polaroid camera in hand, wearing his black leather jacket. The image is scarce but we do trace another, similar example posted to Twitter by the inimitable art critic Jerry Saltz in 2015.
