Andy Warhol’s Panties Could Fetch Six Figures

Page Six at The New York Post reports:
A pair of dime-store panties Andy Warhol bought in 1982 is now worth six figures, according to “Antiques Roadshow.”

Warhol drew an image of Mickey Mouse on the frilly drawers — purchased at the old Lamston’s department store in Union Square — and gave them to his friend Titti Wachtmeister.

Titti died in 1992, but her sister Anna Wachtmeister took the undies to a recent taping of the TV show, and explained why Warhol was beholden to her sister: Titti and Richard and Robert Dupont introduced Warhol to liquor importer Michel Roux — leading to the artist’s Absolut Vodka campaign.
This not what a recession looks like.



  1. Right, I have a pair of soiled tightie whities that I'd like to sell you for your M2 theory Wenzel.

  2. Warhol was the epitome of the phony, cultural artist. Lesson for all "artists" out there. Make up some absurd character, live it, produce dime-store art, become famous. Template has been laid.
