Lou Reed wrote the song at the request of Andy Warhol.
The subject of the song, "Edie" Sedgwick, was an actress, socialite, model, and heiress whose struggle with substance abuse, led to her dying from an overdose of alcohol and barbiturates at the tender age of 28.
Her fame extended well beyond the (Warholian) proverbial 15 minutes - her great-great-great grandfather, William Ellery, was a signatory of the United States Declaration of Independence. However, despite an impressive family tree, Sedgwick was to find only limited success outside of Andy Warhol's Factory crowd.
The poster is available in three sizes, is printed on 200 gsm silk paper and comes ready for framing.
