With its fantastic form and wild palette, it’s no surprise this Kachina Doll caught Warhol’s eye. Different from the dolls he used to create his brightly colored Kachina screenprints, this photo is a testament to his interest in folk art objects. Visit Andy Warhol @ Christie’s to view and bid on the Christie's curated collection.
