Missing Farrah Fawcett Portrait by Andy Warhol May Be Found

Andy-Warhol-Farrah-Fawcett Farrah Fawcett’s will left two Andy Warhol portraits of Fawcett to the University of Texas at Austin, where the actress studied art. The University, however, only received one portrait.

It seems the “lost” portrait was recently filmed hanging in the bedroom of Fawcett’s former boyfriend, Ryan O’Neal. Viewers of O’Neals’ reality television show, Ryan & Tatum: The O’Neals, caught a glimpse of a remarkably similar portrait to that of the missing portrait hanging above O’Neals’ bed.

O’Neal did not receive anything under Fawcett’s will, but his representative claims that O’Neal has not acted contrary to Fawcett’s final wishes.

See Nick Allen, Ryan O’Neal and the missing painting of Farrah Fawcett by Andy Warhol, The Telegraph, Jun. 24, 2011.

Special thanks to Joel Dobris(Professor of Law, UC Davis School of Law) for bringing this to my attention.
