CUTRONE, Ronnie. 3-Dimensional Tour of Andy Warhol’s New York.

(Milan): Luciano Anselmino, no date (c.1975). First edition. Box containing a slide viewer, and 30 slides together with a printed summary by Ronnie Cutrone. The slides capture Warhol’s life from 1968-174, beginning at the second Factory at Union Square West, thru obscure loft parties, fashionable openings, Warhol’s Montauk compound, late dinners, before ending up at the new Factory on Broadway. The vignettes range from bizarre spontaneous situations to personal studies of the people in around Andy Warhol and New York City Those depicted include Devine, Candy Darling, Dali, Alice Cooper, Lou Reed, Jane Forth, Cecille B. De Mille, and of course Andy Warhol, amongst others. Cutrone graduated from the School of Visual Art in 1970 but began to hang out at Andy Warhol’s Factory from a the late 60’s, dancing with the Velvet Underground, working on Interview Magazine, and finally, in 1972, being employed as the key painting assistant to Warhol for many years. The slides and slide viewer are in very good condition. The box is in good condition, the colour is faded on one side, two corners with splitting and some rubbing along the edges. The colophon states that this item was issued in an edition of 100 numbered copies signed by Cutrone and Warhol. This copy is numbered and signed by Cutrone, with Warhol’s name struck through. (We have seen two other examples in 20 odd years and neither were signed). A very scarce item capturing an unusual insight into the life of Andy Warhol and the New York scene during the early 70’s.
