The catalogue for the important Warhol exhibition at the Tate Gallery, London in 1971. The show was part of an international touring exhibition that began in Pasadena and ended at the Whitney Museum, New York. It was Warhol's first large-scale exhibition in Britain and 'At the request of the artist, the exhibition omits all work earlier than 1962 and several developments of the last eight years, and is restricted to the soup cans, disasters, portraits, flowers and Brillo boxes.'. The catalogue was specifically published for the London show and was printed at the Curwen Press. It is generously illustrated with works from the exhibition, plus supplementary pieces. Hard to find in hardback.
