Lot Details

Major printing crease down center, substrate is creased; otherwise colors are fresh.

Andy Warhol, born Andrew Warhola in Pittsburgh, PA, was an iconic and versatile American Pop artist. After studying design at the Carnegie Institute of Technology, Warhol moved to New York in 1949 to pursue a career as a commercial artist. Though successful, Warhol wanted to be an independent painter and in the early 1960s began to create paintings based on advertisement imagery. He built his studio called "The Factory" and developed his signature style, which employed commercial silkscreening techniques to create identical, mass-produced images on canvas. With his multiple images of soup cans, soda bottles, dollar bills and celebrities, Warhol revealed the beauty within mass culture and redefined the art world. Warhol died in 1987 due to complications following an operation; as per his final request, the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts was established after his death.
