Nico And Andy Warhol: Batman And Robin

«Warhol himself was a man of comics. He had used a number of comic images to create an artistic ensemble for the Bonwit Teller Department Store window in New York, including Superman, Dick Tracy and Popeye in 1961, which was one of his earliest ‘Pop Art’ displays. Here there was a Popeye from 1961, a splash of watercolour, graphite and newspaper cutting, Pop Art and then photos for Esquire magazine by Frank Bez of Nico and Andy as Batman and Robin.» ForbiddenPlanet
