Bid on Andy Warhol’s 1974 Silver Shadow Rolls Royce
Andy Warhol’s 1973 Rolls Royce is listed for sale on Art Brokerage with the following stipulations:
This listing is for Andy Warhol’s Rolls Royce. The car was purchased shortly after Sotheby’s 1988 auction of Warhol’s estate. Art Brokerage can provide all authentication. The vehicle has been impeccably stored and maintained, and is in perfect working condition.
The Warhol Stars website mention the purchase:
Andy Warhol bought a new car, “moving up” from a Mercedes to a new black, white and brown Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, instructing his boyfriend Jed Johnson to tell people that he had traded it for art. He later purchased another Rolls Royce in the summer of 1976 – an old and rare station wagon, to use at his place in Montauk – although because of its condition, “it never left the Southampton mechanic’s garage”.
I’d call the original title a unique form of pop art.
