Lot Details

In 1983, Andy Warhol parlayed his lifelong interest in animals into a series of ten screenprints he called “Endangered Species.” The portfolio was produced at the behest of a pair of New York art dealers, Ronald and Frayda Feldman, who became interested in the idea of such a project in the wake of their numerous conversations with Warhol concerning ecological issues such as beach erosion. The brightly colored prints with their vigorous, erratic linear delineation—“animals in make-up,” as Warhol described them—depict animals such as a giant panda, a Grevy’s zebra, a bald eagle, and, here, the Siberian tiger, all envisioned majestically and yet betraying a poignant resignation to their fate.

Siberian Tiger, from the Endangered Species portfolio is in excellent condition, framed immediately upon purchase behind u/v plexi with acid free papers, never rolled. Purchased by current owner's gallery in 1983 from Ronald Feldman. Float matted on acid-free board, backed with foamcore, framed with 3 inch linen on wood mat (does not touch print) and 1" black square modern, lacquer frame behind plexi.

(Removed from frame for photography and will be returned to frame by museum-quality framer if desired by purchaser--prior to shipment. Framed size is 47 x 47 inches.)

Framed: 47 x 47 inches
