Lot Details

In this screenprint, Mike Bidlo appropriates one of the most iconic images from Warhol’s “Jackie” series. Depicting a grieving Jacqueline Kennedy shortly after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, “Not Warhol (Jackie)” is an excellent example of the accurate reproductions which have earned Bidlo international acclaim.

Mike Bidlo (b. 1953) is an American painter, sculptor, and performance artist, best known for his highly accurate replications of works of modern art. He earned his BA from the University of Illinois in 1973, and his MFA from Southern Illinois University Carbondale in 1975. As part of the East Village art scene of the early 80s, Mike Bidlo began to appropriate modern masters by focusing on replicating the paintings of Jackson Pollock. Since then, Bidlo has continued to reexamine the most famous paintings and sculptures by 20th century artists including Léger, Warhol, Duchamp, Picasso and Man Ray, among others. As an integral part of the "appropriationist" movement, alongside other artists such as Sherrie Levine and Philip Taaffe, Bidlo explores notions of authorship and originality with his work. His work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Saatchi Collection, London, England; Sezon Museum, Tokyo, Japan; Bruno Bischofberger Gallery, Zurich, Switzerland; Sean Kelly Gallery, New York, NY; and MoMA PS1, New York, NY.
