ANDRÉ PERUGIA & ANDY WARHOL | FROM FOOTWEAR TO ART [AND BACK AGAIN] | PART 2/2

La replica Charles Jourdan del sandalo di Perugia non é stato il primo incontro tra André Perugia e Andy Warhol. Il precedente risale agli anni '50 quando Warhol ha disegnato la scarpa qui sotto. Guardatela attentamente e cercate le differenze.

The Charles Jourdan replica of the Perugia sandal was not the first encounter between André Perugia and Andy Warhol. They first met - so to speak - back in the '50s when Warhol draw the shoe below. Now, look very close and try to spot the differences.

Scoperta ragguardevole e per questo dobbiamo ringraziare ALANNA CAVANAGH dell'omonimo blog.

Noi possiamo solo aggiungere una pagina de La Gazette Du Bon Ton con la medesima scarpa disegnata da Pierre Mourgue con la quale si riesce anche a fornire una datazione precisa (1923) rispetto al generico "primi anni '20".


A very nice discover and we all should say thank you to ALANNA CAVANAGH from the blog of the same name.

We can only add our tiny bit with a page from La Gazette Du Bon Ton: the drawing by Pierre Mourgue also helps to provide a verified date (1923) instead of the generic early Twenties.
