Andy Warhol's shoes
Yes, Andy Warhol also used shoes as a theme like we saw two post below Van Gogh's shoes and boots. This is the series "A la recherche du shoe perdu", title inspired by Marcel Proust's oeuvre "In Search of Lost Time - A la Recherche du temps perdu", Andy Warhol did in 1955 with captions by Ralph Pomeroy. Prior to this he had already used shoes as theme passing around his friends to promote himself and at this series he depicts shoes in a very glamorous and magical way. In 1980-1 he publishes the series "Diamond Dust Shoes" using diamond dusts in his printings. Today is Saturday. Put on your red shoes and dance! Dancing is very Warhol since he said that he did nothing but going to parties. “I am a deeply superficial person.” "An artist is somebody who produces things that people don't need to have." "During the 1960s, I think, people forgot what emotions were supposed to be. And I don't think they've ever remembered."
