Artwork Title: (Red Sam with Purple Eyes)

(Red Sam with Purple Eyes), 1954

Andy Warhol

From: 25 Cats Named Sam and One Blue Pussy. Signed in ball-point pen on the colophon and numbered from the edition of 190. Printed by Seymour, Berlin. To call Andy Warhol a cat person would be an understatement... Warhol’s cat collection began when he feared his single cat Hester would grow lonely. After bringing home another cat, named Sam, the two began a family—eventually reaching 25, each of whom Warhol gave the same name.
