Snite Museum of Art
Around 1979 Warhol's friend, the fashion designer Halston, commissioned an advertising campaign for his line of women's shoes, made by Garolini. He sent a large cardboard box to the Factory filled with single samples of high-heeled shoes. When they were spilled onto the floor, the artist liked the haphazard patterns they made and began shooting Polaroids. Scores followed, including this print.
