Andy Warhol Marilyn x 50

Marilyn x 50 by Andy Warhol art print


Marilyn Monroe's face is presented as an impenetrable mask in bright luminous colours. Published in ten different colour combinations, using the impersonal screenprinting process, the multi-coloured surface portrays her image in a startlingly lurid manner. monroe is probably Warhol's most famous subject. He used a pubably Warhol's most famous subject. He used a publicity still as the basis for this and other of her, representing us with a frozen image that Hollywood's personae. The portrayal of Monroe as a product of mass culture, packaged for the public as if a consumer item, connects this work to the American Pop Art movement. Warhol, a printer, graphic artist and filmmaker, was a cult figure during the 1960s. He remained, however, an intensely private man, saying: "If you want to know everything about me, just look at the surface of my paintings, it's all there, there's nothing more."
