Lot description
Executed in the final years of Warhol’s life, this unique screenprinted paper collage demonstrates the renewed vigor and artistic inspiration that Warhol experienced during the 1980s. Drawing on themes and imagery dominating contemporary culture, Warhol continued his career long exploration of American consumerism through printing techniques and color. Here, Warhol presents a bright collage of colored paper with printed images appropriated from fashion magazines layered on a white background. Through collage, Warhol gives a fresh perspective to the images of fashion models and trends that were repeatedly imposed on consumers. Although the fads are fleeting, Warhol’s distinctive treatment elevates the images to icon status as they function within the enduring repertoire of compositions on the subject, which provides a visual record of fashion through the decades.

Please note the work is in excellent condition aside from minor warping and scuffing along the edges of paper that is consistent with Warhol's paper collages.

Andy Warhol (1927-1987) is the most widely recognized artist of the 1960s Pop Art movement, a genre that would change the American art market indefinitely. Warhol received his Bachelors of Fine Arts from the Carnegie Institute of Technology in 1949, and subsequently moved to New York City to pursue a career in the arts. It was not long before he was creating ground-breaking works, including paintings, prints, photographs, and films, that brought attention to American pop culture and the lifestyle of Hollywood celebrities. Warhol embraced market culture and helped to lead a change in the New York art scene that would in turn influence others to also look to consumer culture and goods for artistic inspiration. Today, he is regarded as one of the most prominent artists of the twentieth century, contributing not only thousands of works of art that are housed in museums and collections worldwide but also an iconic style that would impact the art market and artists alike for decades. His works have been exhibited in over two thousand exhibitions, including retrospectives at The Gagosian Gallery, New York, NY (2008); Musée National d´Art Moderne, Paris, France (1990); and The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL (1989).
