Andy Warhol and Pia Zadora During a Photoshoot at the Factory in 1983

Pia Zadora (born 1954 as Pia Alfreda Schipani) is an American actress and singer. After working as a child actress on Broadway, in regional theater, and in the film Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964), she came to national attention in 1981 when, following her starring role in the highly criticized Butterfly, she won a Golden Globe Award as New Star of the Year while simultaneously winning the Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress and the Worst New Star for the same performance.

When in the 1980s, Zadora’s film career failed to achieve critical success, she switched her focus to music. As a singer, she has released several albums featuring popular standards, often backed by a symphonic orchestra. She was nominated for a Grammy in 1984.

These photos captured moments of Andy Warhol and Pia Zadora during a photoshoot at the Factory for her silkscreen portraits in 1983.
