1977 Willie Shoemaker Poster Signed By Andy Warhol (PSA LOA)

1977 Willie Shoemaker Poster Signed By Andy Warhol (PSA LOA)

Extremely tough to find poster created from the painting and serigraphs he did for the world's most famous jockey. Part of the three year period in which he created "Andy's Athletes", Shoemaker is perhaps the most storied of the dozen he did in that period along with Muhammad Ali and OJ Simpson. Willie's wife showed up who Warhol recounted as being one of the tallest women he had ever seen. When she dressed the 4'10" jockey for the photo, "he looked like an eight-year-old kid. And guess what he was wearing – little Jockey shorts!" A strange image but that came right from Andy Warhol's journal. This poster advertises an exhibition in collaboration with LeRoy Neiman. Mounted on linen, it measures 23.5x37" overall. Comes with LOA from PSA/DNA. Far rarer than the other posters in the series such as the Muhammad Ali which we have seen a few times.
