During the 1960s Andy Warhol began to explore the iconic status of everyday objects such as his portraits of notable personalities like Marilyn Monroe. This is the artist's most famous image which defined both the artist and the pop movement.

Andy Warhol,was born on August 6, 1928 in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. He is considered by many as the most influential American artist of the second half of the 20th century. Warhol's signature style used commercial silkscreening techniques to create identical, mass produced images on canvas, then variations in color to give each print of an edition a different look.
