Besides this very piece, we have never seen another one of these anywhere in the world - let alone one hand signed by Andy Warhol himself, as the present work. This is a hand signed invitation to an exhibition of Andy Warhol’s “10 Images of Jews of the Twentieth Century” and “The Creativity Wall.” The event was held by The Goldman Fine Arts Gallery of the Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington, and included a reception to meet the artist, Andy Warhol, on Mar. 16. No year is mentioned in the invitation (typical of that era), but Warhol produced his “10 Images of Jews” series in 1980. Warhol's signature is in marker on a blank page of the invitation. The original owner of this piece personally attended the event and has included a signed note stating that Andy Warhol signed it in his presence. Authenticity of the signature and invitation unconditionally guaranteed by Alpha 137 Gallery.
Very rare invitation depicting Albert Einstein - one of the most important and influential Jews in world history. Unframed and in fine condition. This work is two sided.

Signature: Boldly signed in black marker by Andy Warhol.

Publisher: The Goldman Fine Arts Gallery of the Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington

The original owner of this rare historical piece personally attended this event. We have seen no other invitations like this rare piece of Andy Warhol ephemera anywhere else in the world at this time.

About Andy Warhol

Obsessed with celebrity, consumer culture, and mechanical (re)production, Pop artist Andy Warhol created some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. As famous for his quips as for his art—he variously mused that “art is what you can get away with” and “everyone will be famous for 15 minutes”—Warhol drew widely from popular culture and everyday subject matter, creating works like his 32 Campbell's Soup Cans (1962), Brillo pad box sculptures, and portraits of Marilyn Monroe, using the medium of silk-screen printmaking to achieve his characteristic hard edges and flat areas of color. Known for his cultivation of celebrity, Factory studio (a radical social and creative melting pot), and avant-garde films like Chelsea Girls (1966), Warhol was also a mentor to artists like Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. His Pop sensibility is now standard practice, taken up by major contemporary artists Richard Prince, Takashi Murakami, and Jeff Koons, among countless others.
