Four areas of tape staining and two remains of tape, verso, otherwise artwork is in excellent condition. Ladies and Gentlemen 131 by Andy Warhol is part of his Ladies and Gentlemen series that tackled the socio-political issues of cross-dressers and the nature of cross-dressing men and women. Created in 1975, these screenprints use Warhol's classic portrait format; beginning with Polaroid photographs taken of the sitter. Most of the subjects in the series were discovered at a New York club called The Gilded Grape. Displaying a bright, feminine palette of reds, pinks, greens, and other pastel colors, the finished works are uniquely lush and painterly, emphasizing these glamorous, larger than life subjects.
