Estimate: $1000+

Description

Very desirable color semi-glossy 4 x 5.75 postcard of Andy Warhol’s 1962 quadriptych ‘Marilyn Monroe,’ which shows four images of the blonde starlet smiling against a blue background, signed nicely in the lower border in black felt tip by Warhol. In very fine condition.

Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the original recipient, who writes, in part: “I moved to New York City and lived in Manhattan from July 1976 until May 1981. During that period of time, I attended several book signings that Andy Warhol was participating in…This autographed postcard, of Marilyn Monroe, ca. 1962, was signed in my presence, for me, by Andy Warhol, and was obtained during one of those such events.”
