Here are two of the most iconic figures – never mind artists – of the 20th Century photographed together in a New York hotel suite by David McCabe. Warhol was downing wine in a bid to calm his nerves – Dali probably didn’t help by plonking this headdress on him. It’s just one of the fascinating pictures contained in David McCabe’s book A Year in the Life of Andy Warhol with an exhibition about to open at the Proud Gallery. McCabe’s refusal to buy into the cultish reverence that surrounded Warhol makes the pictures unflinchingly honest, and all the more interesting.
