Description:

Warhol created a portfolio of ten different Electric Chairs in 1971. This particular print is one of those ten and has a mostly orange color to it. Out of the other prints in this portfolio, it also has a more painterly feel to it, with a yellow stroke through the center of it. While the other prints in this portfolio are mostly two colors, a foreground and a background, this particular print has more color variations in it. The idea of taking an object that held so much power, and isolating it, abstracting it and repeating it, is something that Warhol continues to do throughout his career. Also, by doing that the image is no longer about the electric chair and what it does, it’s about the image itself and the colors found in it.
