Debbie Harry Cherishes Andy Warhol Portrait
The Blondie frontwoman posed for Warhol in his New York studio, The Factory, and she admits being in his company was an overwhelming experience.
She tells Scotland's Sunday Mail, "I was thrilled when he wanted to do a portrait of me. It put me in good company with tins of Campbell's Soup, Elizabeth Taylor and Liza Minnelli.
"I went to The Factory where he had a team of people working on his art pieces. It was like a school of painters - all these amazing pictures spread out over the floor.
"Andy shot Polaroids of me for hours then chose the one he liked best. I've got a copy of my finished portrait. It's very precious to me and a great keepsake."
