Torso Double 35

In 1977, Andy Warhol began to work on two series which would become known as Torso and Sex Parts. It debuted at the Grand Palais in Paris in October 1977. The series was created from a collection of erotic photographs taken by Warhol. According to associate Bob Colacello, when Warhol was asked about the erotic photographs laying in his office, Warhol responded, “Just tell them it’s art, Bob. They’re landscapes.”

TORSO DOUBLE 35 BY ANDY WARHOL IS PART OF A LARGER BODY OF WORK

Warhol was inspired by classical nudes and the erotic depiction of the human body. Warhol would have learned about classical depictions of nudes during his Art History classes at Carnegie Tech, including famous examples such as Venus of Wilendorf and Titan’s Venus of Urbino, The Torso series explores Warhol’s fascination with the intersection of identity, sexuality, and the human body.
