Untitled (body painting)

Andy Warhol introduced Keith to Grace Jones. He thought that hers was the ultimate body to paint — Grace embodying both primitive and pop, Harings obsessions. Warhol arranged for Robert Mapplethorpe to photograph the finished body painting. At the session, Jones stripped to her underwear, and donned a huge crown and rubber jewelry designed by David Spada.
