WHAT’S IT LIKE TO DISCOVER A NEW WARHOL PIECE?

on April 28 | in Art, notable talks & things | by | with No Comments

Music producer & creative artist Cory Arcangel approached in December 2011 the Andy Warhol Museum with an uncommon question after he saw a Youtube clip of pop art genius Andy Warhol. In the clip Warhol creates a digital portrait of Blondie singer Debbie Harry as part of a 1985 advertisement for the Commodore Amiga 1000. Arcangel wondered what happened to the image and wanted to know why it isn’t exhibited in the museum yet. The images are Warhol’s first ever digital portraits. 

Cory’s curiosity led to a collaborative group that examined & restored archival copies of floppy disks in the museum. An emulated version of  GraphiCraft (the software on which Warhol created the portrait) helped to bring back the images and recovered 3 new digital files produced by Warhol in 1985. Our header image shows a self-portrait of Warhol. Below you’ll find the two images that were also recovered:
