Dearest Andy

Silver Liz – Andy Warhol, 1963

Screen legend Elizabeth Taylor waited 14 years to acquire her own, personal version of the Andy Warhol silk-screens in which she featured; an iconic collection of pieces that were in many ways an extension of Warhol’s infatuation with the star. One can only imagine how much this subsequent letter of thanks, written by Taylor, meant to the artist.

Dearest Andy

I’m so proud I finally have your “Liz” and thank you for signing it so sweetly to me.

I do love you.
