Shoe and Handbag 1960
  • Artist Rooms
Shoes and feet were of great interest to Warhol and featured in his work throughout his career. In his vast collection of art and objects he even owned a mummified foot. After arriving in New York in 1949, Warhol quickly established himself as one of the most sought-after illustrators of women’s shoes. He was especially celebrated for his work for I. Miller, whose reputation was revitalised with his whimsical adverts for their shoes.
