Lot description
Warhol returns to portraiture in this homage to the hero of the Battle of Little Big Horn, Sitting Bull. "Sitting Bull," based on an archival photograph of the Sioux Chief, was originally conceived as part of the portfolio "Cowboys and Indians" (the first to combine images of people and objects), but was left out at the last minute and replaced with another subject. This is a beautiful impression that has been authenticated by the Warhol Foundation with its stamps on the verso.
