This iconic portrait of Andy Warhol was shot at the Stockholm gallery Gummesons in 1976. Warhol had traveled to Sweden to attend the opening of his exhibition Cats & Dogs. Hans Gedda was there on behalf of the magazine Månadsjournalen working together with the late journalist Nils Petter Sundgren. Gedda was young and shy, not very comfortable with the crowded room. As he wandered away from the hectic exhibition room he stumbled upon the equally shy Warhol hiding in the back room. Despite Gedda’s poor english skills they connected and ended up having a good time which made it possible for Gedda to take this picture.
The gelatin silver print, "Andy Warhol", 1976, is signed Hans Gedda and is edition 3/10. The work will be sold at Contemporary Art & Design 17 June and will be on view on 11 – 15 June at Berzelii Park 1 i Stockholm, Sweden.
