I have been trying to track down a Andy Warhol Book that has a color illustration of his High Button shoe "Mae West" which he created in 1956 and is in the collection of Mr. and Mrs. David Evins.

I am sure I saw an Andy Warhol book depicting his drawing of his version of a Mae West shoe. Can't remember the book unfortunately. Perhaps someone reading this blog may know. Cheers!

I have bought the painting given to Lorne Micheals 1980 from Warhol . That year warhol was on SNL.
But Micheals must have let go of the painting here in Toronto where I bought it, Micheals is from Toronto
