Description / Expertise

In 1966, Bob Dylan came to the factory for a screen test. He did not endear himself to Warhol;he demanded payment. Warhol gave him a silver double Elvis screen print which he took it to his agent and swapped it for a couch.

Unique black and white print from the negative, taken in 1966 and printed before August 1969.
