Remembering Andy Warhol

At the time of Andy Warhol’s death in February 1987, there were about 50,000 photographs, many of them Polaroids, in his estate. The Warhol Foundation gave about half of the pictures, which at the time were valued at next to nothing, to small museums in cities like Scranton, Pa., and Portland, Ore. The rest have largely gone unseen. A little over a decade ago, Jim Hedges, a retired investment banker, began aggressively acquiring photos from the Warhol Foundation. He now operates Hedges Projects, a private dealership focused on all things Warholian, out of a West Village brownstone. For full story click here.
