Chelsea Girls print by Siggi Eggertsson


The original poster was a piece of iconic 60s design but Chelsea Girls gets a new look courtesy of this print by Siggi Eggertsson.

Andy Warhol's 1966 film is often remembered more for its poster by Alan Aldridge than for the film itself, which followed some of the residents in New York's Chelsea Hotel. That cast included Nico and the film then inspired her debut album the following year. Probably because of that, Nico is the star of this poster, depicted in a bright and colourful manner that reflects the Pop art associated with Warhol. Add to that some other nice details too – such as the cast list worked into the main design – and you've got a nice piece of original art work for your walls. 

The giclee print is available in two sizes at two prices: either A2 for £85 or 60cm x 84cm for £145.

eBay watch: Signed Alan Aldridge Chelsea Girls poster


Yes, it's more than a bit pricey, but this signed Alan Aldridge Chelsea Girls poster is an iconic image and one you'll rarely find on eBay.

Chelsea Girls was a 1966 experimental underground film directed by Andy Warhol and Paul Morrissey, following the lives of young women at the Hotel Chelsea. It was also the inspiration for Nico's 1967 debut album, Chelsea Girl.

Yet most of that seems forgotten while the poster is still one of the most memorable images of the era. This particular poster was apparently hand-signed by Aldridge in 1970 and according to the seller, has a gallery guide price of £5,000. He is asking £4,500, which seems a bit rich for an eBay sale, but he will take an offer. You can always chance your arm.
