Guerrilla Girls
Q. How many works by women artists were in the Andy Warhol and Tremaine auctions at Sotheby’s?, (1989)
Lithograph edition of 50


This work shows criticism by the Guerrilla Girls for the male-only artist selection of works that ended up in the Tremaine Collection auction in 1988 (while numerous works by female artists collected by the Tremaines over the years were left out). Also, please note that the auction was at Christie’s, not Sotheby’s. While not part of the Miller Co. / Tremaine Collection, this work is part of the overall discourse.
