Black-eyed Susans

.

An ode to the current changing of the seasons here in L.A.: Andy Warhol in Flushing, Queens, amid black-eyed Susans near the 1964 World’s Fair, with a freshly completed Flowers painting in the background.

William John Kennedy, a freelance photographer when the photos were taken, had

nearly forgotten about them and only rediscovered the images several years ago in a “beat-up cardboard box” while Kennedy and his wife were preparing to move to Miami.”These photographs are a revelation: disclosing the early Warhol’s intimate relationship with his work; revealing more about the artist and the work through these intimate portraits. Though the subject of innumerable photos, we have not seen this Warhol before.”
