Ethel Scull 36 Times, 1963, was Andy Warhol's first commissioned portrait.
Very interesting short article about the Warhol portrait of Ethel Scull, the wife of taxi mogul Robert Schull, by Ann Landi for ARTnews. Bitter divorce, joint custody, and an incredible work of art. I'm heading over to see the painting tomorrow!
