TRUMAN CAPOTE and ANDY WARHOL
Truman Capote and Andy Warhol sign a magazine cover.
Magazine Cover signed: "Truman Capote" and inscribed and signed "To [portion of inscription missing] Andy Warhol". Color, 10¾x16. Cover of "Interview" magazine, picturing tennis champion Vitas Gerulaitis, July 1979 issue. Remainder of magazine in pouch affixed to verso. Pop art innovator ANDY WARHOL (1927-1987) first introduced "Interview" magazine, which was formatted toward the movies and promoted the concept of movie stars interviewing each other in a completely free, unedited forum, in 1969. Warhol personally interviewed cover subject Gerulaitis at the magazine's Paris bureau. Author TRUMAN CAPOTE (1927-1984), who often acted as a contributing editor, had begun a series, entitled "Conversations with Capote", for the magazine that year. The series featured Capote's original short stories, most of which were published as a collection in Music for Chameleons in 1980. This issue of "Interview" includes a Capote story, a powerful fictionalized profile of Marilyn Monroe entitled "A Beautiful Child", rendered in the experimental form of a movie script. Warhol shared Capote's fascination with the magnetic Monroe, who often appeared in the artist's Pop celebrity portraits of the experimental 1960s. Capote and Warhol also shared a longtime friendship in business, art and pleasure. Lightly creased with mid-horizontal fold. 1x1-inch paper loss at lower left margin, lower right corner torn away. Stray ink mark at lower left on clothing and on chin of image. Overall, fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 32x25.
