Do you know a Beverly Hills brat who would appreciate this print with such a brilliant inscription - handwritten by Andy Warhol? You won't find another like this! This hand signed and uniquely inscribed Andy Warhol offset lithograph comes from the collection of multiple Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Timothy D. Kehr. Very few of these posters were hand signed by Warhol - let alone with such fine provenance and a brilliant inscription. This offset lithograph was created on the occasion of the Andy Warhol exhibition at Museum Van Hedendaagse Kunst, Gent, now called the S.M.A.K. (Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst) in Ghent, Belgium. It depicts Warhol's iconic 1964 work, Marilyn. Many rare print dealers wrongly claim it was created in 1964 - because it depicts Warhol's 1964 work. But this museum didn't even exist until the 1970s - and the poster depicting the 1964 work was created in the 1980s. This print is, exceptionally hand signed and inscribed by Andy Warhol on lower recto (front). Inscription reads as follows:
To Beverly Hills Brat
This was acquired from the Estate of Tim D. Kehr, a media personality, Hall of Fame record producer, concert promoter, publisher, advertising executive media impresario. He was an avid patron and lover of the arts, music and theater and was a passionate world traveler.
