1st Printing. 53 pages. Published in 1995. Exhibition Catalog. The true First Edition.

Published in a small and limited print run as hardcover original only. There is no ISBN. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by John Cheim: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial hard boards with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Art by Andy Warhol. Essay, "Sex Is So Abstract", by Linda Nochlin. List of Plates appended at the end. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the landmark exhibition at the Robert Miller Gallery in 1995. Presents Andy Warhol's "Nudes". Drawings, photographs, and silkscreen paintings lovingly catalogued, assembled, and "orchestrated" for the very first time. A fascinating overview of Andy Warhol's (mostly male) nude work. Here are some of the most explicit - and always exquisite - nudes as only Andy Warhol could conceive and execute them. Seemingly a detached, laconic observer, Warhol let his guard down when it came to sex: The collection unmistakably shows that he was obsessed with the male genitalia in a way that would be considered unhealthy (and perhaps it was) were it not for the fact that whatever Warhol touched, as it were, he turned into art. Their very "accessibility" is inseparable from their singular brilliance. Largely kept hidden in his lifetime, they are now regarded as an indispensable part of Warhol's legacy, worthy to rank with the work of such 20th-century giants of erotic art as Jean Cocteau (to which many of the early drawings allude), Pablo Picasso (with which they have little in common), and David Hockney (with which they share a tender and bittersweet love of the male form). An absolute "must-have" title for Andy Warhol collectors. This title is a contemporary art book classic. This is one of very few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: This is the original Robert Miller Gallery Edition, NOT the Overlook Press Reissued Edition. A rare copy thus. 53 color plates. One of the greatest artists of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ANDY WARHOL TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Bookseller Inventory # 13846
