Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $10,055.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Exquisite limited edition 32 x 40 screenprint in colors with diamond dust on Lenox Museum Board, entitled 'Edward Kennedy' (FS II.240), numbered 120/300, signed in the lower right corner in pencil by Warhol. In fine condition, with a short vertical crease at bottom center. Printed by Rupert Jansen Smith of New York, and published by the Kennedy for President Committee of Washington, D.C., Warhol created this incredible silkscreened portrait in 1980 as a fundraiser for Kennedy's presidential campaign. The blue-and-red highlights play off the color of the American flag, while the embedded diamond dust suggests the glamour of the Kennedy name. Although Ted Kennedy lost the 1980 Democratic nomination to Jimmy Carter, he continued to serve as a highly influential leader in the Senate until his death in 2009. A marvelous example of one of Warhol's large-scale portraits of an American icon.
