Geronimo 384 is a screenprint from the Cowboys and Indians series. In this series, Warhol explores the Old West as an All-American collective history. Warhol’s work creates a commentary on mass media and the way in which contrived imagery can affect how we understand our history. Images of Geronimo, Annie Oakley and Mother and Child are based on characters in the Hollywood adaptation of our history and do not truly represent the roles that these real individuals historically played.
