ANDY WARHOL "COMMITTEE 2000" SCREENPRINT, 1982
"Committee 2000" is a perfect emblem from Andy Warhol's ultra-glamorous final decade during the climax of the last days of disco. Created in 1982, during Studio54's heyday, it is likely that the confetti-strewn champagne glasses were photographed in the legendary night club, or another hedonistic New York City venue.
Considered as a "modern day still life" this fine screen print is one of the most successful and iconic creations of Warhol's from the 1980's. It is one of the very few notable screenprints that are still accessible.
Despite the indulgences the subject represents, this work was created with philanthropic motivations. It was made of the Committee 2000 in Munich and funds were generated for arts related initiatives that would be realized leading up to the new millennium.
