Lot Essay

In the 1970s, Warhol began stitching photographs together to create a unique photographic composition with similar repetition and structure typical of his paintings and prints. In this work, he creates a triangular composition out of three important Studio 54 figures. Bianca Jagger was the supermodel wife of Mick Jagger and friend of Andy Warhol who spent seemingly every night at Studio 54. Singer Rex Smith was a teen idol in the 1970s who had a top 10 hit in 1979 with “You Take My Breath Away.” Smith was often at Studio, even attending the highly exclusive reopening party in 1981. Steve Rubell, with friend Ian Schrager, created the fabled New York disco that became the place to be in the late 1970s and early 1980s – the place where anyone who was anyone spent their nights.
