Warhol has long been one of John Fisher Dann’s favorite artists, and the selection in City Folk represents that. One the world renowned pop artists' Mao Zedong prints is on display in the shop's window, while a beautiful poster for The Film Society of Lincoln Center hangs prominently in the entryway.
"That poster had been in a tube for decades. I pulled it out recently was a shocked by how brilliant the colors were. I believe it's from 1967, but it looks like it was just printed yesterday," Fisher Dann said.
For Fisher Dann, there is also a personal connection to the Warhol pieces.
"I first got into his work around the age of 18, then at 22 or 23 I got an opportunity to meet him. Andy owned a building in Chicago, Cobblers Square in Old Town, and a friend of mine had a condo in it. So I went to the opening party and Andy was there, he'd done a poster for the event. I cornered him and struck up a conversation. and sure enough, we actually kept in touch. I went to see him a few times in New York, before his passing," Fisher Dann recollected.
