In 1980 Andy Warhol visited Rosenthal AG in Selb accompanied by the gallery owner Hans Mayer and his manager Fred Hughes. The contact had been arranged by Dr. Peter Littmann, a senior manager at the company and keen art enthusiast, to arrange a portrait of Philip Rosenthal. He found his visit to Rosenthal inspiring, especially the atmosphere in Erkersreuth Castle. The later portrait of Philip Rosenthal was created in Warhol's New York 'Factory' Studio based upon Polaroid shots taken in Selb. In the framework of a co-operation with the 'Andy Warhol Foundation' the portrait has now been transferred onto porcelain for the first time complimenting the Hommage | Philip Rosenthal.
