Lot Details

This is a beautiful impression of "Grevy's Zebra" from Warhol's Endangered Species series. "Grevy's Zebra" has not come to auction in five years, making it a highly desirability work from the series. The zebra is one of the only subjects in the series that is shown in profile, allowing for a fuller view of the animal's colorful stripes . The bold outlines of the zebra’s stripes make the work as a whole incredibly dynamic. Warhol once described these works as “animals in makeup,” and, like his celebrity portraits, the artist’s surreal palette amplifies the exotic nature of his wildlife subjects.

Framed size: 40 x 40 inches (101.6 x 101.6 cm)
