Warhol’s Queens combines the artist’s portraits of actual female royalty with images of drag queens. For Warhol (1928–1987), both these genuine and fake queens epitomized idealized femininity, devoting their lives to presenting an unattainably glittering pageantry to the public for (not all too) close inspection. This volume juxtaposes Warhol’s Polaroids of Princess Caroline of Monaco, Farah Diba Pahlavi and the then-Crown Princess Sonja, of Norway, with drag queens, whom Warhol characterized as “living testimony to the way women used to want to be, the way some people still want them to be and the way some women still actually want to be.” The intense faces with their exceptionally colored lips, eyes and hair are both aloof and strangely intimate. With its in-depth scholarly essays, this book is essential for fans of Warhol’s portraiture and camp culture. With text by Hubertus Butin, Clément Chéroux, Henriette Dedichen, Dietmar Elger, and Matt Wrbican.

Book Description Hatje Cantz Verlag Gmbh Mai 2013, 2013. Buch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Warhol's Queens bietet ein überraschendes Mosaik aus den Porträts von echten Königinnen, die der Künstler schuf, und aus Bildern seiner Drag Queens. Für Andy Warhol (1928-1987) spielten die echten wie die falschen Königinnen die Rolle einer idealisierten Filmstar-Weiblichkeit, sie widmeten ihr Leben dem Ziel, einen glitzernden und funkelnden 'way of life' zu tradieren und ihn dem Publikum zur - nicht allzu - genauen Betrachtung vorzulegen. Der Band stellt Warhols Polaroids von Prinzessin Caroline von Monaco, Farah Diba Pahlavi und Kronprinzessin Sonja, heute Königin Sonja von Norwegen, den Drag Queens gegenüber. Alle sind sie, mit den Worten des Künstlers, 'ein lebender Beweis dafür, wie Frauen früher sein wollten, wie manche Leute sie heute noch haben wollen und wie manche Frauen auch heute noch tatsächlich sein möchten'. Warhol's Queens präsentiert intensive Gesichter mit extrem kolorierten Lippen, Augen und Haaren, die als sexuelle Fetische dienen und unwiderstehlich wirken. 176 pp. Englisch.
