Tim Hunt, who died recently, was the curator of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts for more than 20 years. He had a deep love for tribal art and culture. Before joining the foundation, Tim was a prominent gallerist and curator, and worked at Christies London (1980-1986), specializing in African and Oceanic art.
The over-the-top and always brilliant Tama Janowitz helped define ’80 culture in America. Author of “Slaves of New York” and other bestsellers, she was a frequent guest on David Letterman and a memorable and edgy spokesperson for Amaretto and Apple Computers. Tama’s close relationship with Andy Warhol is a cherished time in her life – two creative, spontaneous souls, bounding about New York.
Often referred to in the press as “Tim and Tam,” Hunt and Janowitz married and adopted a daughter, Willow, from China. Tama currently enjoys a quieter life in upstate New York, where she loves to ride horses and write.
The auction of the Collection of Tim Hunt and Tama Janowitz on Sunday, May 20, will start at 1:15 p.m. Eastern time.
