Christopher Makos: Andy Warhol Weightlifting

Regular price Regular price $20,485

This image of Andy Warhol weightlifting belongs to a series of portraits of the artist taken by Christopher Makos, who photographed Warhol on trips, at social engagements, and working in the studio in the early 1980s. During this period, Warhol explored his love for fashion by posing for Makos and working as a model represented by Zoli and Ford Models. The shot reveals Warhol’s muscular arm, toned from long days of painting and printing, and anticipates his later images of bodybuilders, such as Be a Somebody with a Body (1985–86).
