Appreciate: “Diamond Dust Shoes”

Photo Credit:

Love him or hate him, Andy Warhol is one of the most prolific artist of the 20th century. Everyone knows his Campbell’s soup, Brooklyn Bridge, and Marilyn Monroe prints, but some of his equally good but lesser known deserve some recognition.  His 1980s “Diamond Dust Shoes” series was inevitable because in the beginning of his career, he  drew women’s shoes for a retail store. Set against a black background covered in crushed glass to emulate diamonds, the jewel-colored heels vividly pop out, continuing Warhol’s trend of Pop Art. The original is valued at $1.5 million, but a print of the work and the frame can be obtained for much less.
