Lot description
Warhol's Electric Chairs from his death and disaster canon are considered his most famous images. Created in the mid-60s and made into prints in the 1970s, they represent some of the artist's most controversial and thought-provoking works even today. Warhol has abstracted the image as to almost obliterate it, reducing the image to a notation or blueprint. Created when the artist was at the top of his game. This print was published by famed Swiss gallerist Bruno Bischofberger who was one of the first European dealers to realize Warhol's importance in Europe long before Warhol gained prominence in America. This work is edition 131/250 and is in Mint Condition.

Framed archivally in black wooden frame. Framed dimensions: 41.25 h x 53.25 w in.
