Lot Details

Warhol created the Ads portfolio based on popular advertising campaigns and logos in Contemporary American culture. These Ads were not simply a means to sell products, but had become an integral part of American life. Warhol included the Paramount, Apple and Mobilgas logos, as well as advertisements that featured well known celebrities, such as Judy Garland in Blackglama fur, and Ronald Reagan for Van Heusen apparel.

"The New Spirit (Donald Duck)" was the title of a World War II propaganda film Walt Disney studios created using the popular Donald Duck character to create mass appeal. The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary feature in 1943. Warhol created this iconic print 40 years later, demonstrating the impact the use of mass media for government gain, an entirely different type of advertising, had on Warhol.

This impression of the work is a unique piece. No other versions of this print in these colors exist.
