Energy Power is a bold and powerful painting that Warhol included in his Ads and Illustrations series. All the works belonging to the series were created between 1985 and 1986 during the time of the Cold War, which contextually becomes quite apparent in Warhol’s image choices. This painting portrays a hand cradling a symbol of nuclear power, which was a looming anxiety shared by Americans at that time. The quick, gestural lines along with the stark black and white contrast further contribute to the piece’s impact.
