This lot consists of a fine art print on paper, Hand Signed "Andy Warhol" at bottom right. Image portrays a Pop Art version of the American actress, Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962). The subject matter and punchy colors of this piece are quintessential to the Pop Art movement's preoccupation with both mass culture and graphic design. During the 1960s, death emerged as a distinctive theme within the artwork of Andy Warhol. His attention naturally focused on Monroe, perhaps the single-most famous (and ill-fated) pop star of the modern era. This piece is a prime example of the Pop Art style of Andy Warhol (American, 1928 -1987). Overall unframed piece measures approximately 7.5" x 8.5". Mounted within matte paper frame.
Overall Approx. 7" x 8.5".
