Andy Warhol created his unique painting Gun in the early 1980s for a series of paintings commenting on the commercialization of violence. It is one piece that exemplifies his fascination with death. Warhol created this painting thirteen years after Valerie Solanas shot him, an experience he never fully recovered from. This particular Gun painting depicts the same .32 revolver that Valerie Solanas used to shoot him. The monochromatic color scheme leaves no questions as to Warhol’s intent in creating the painting. It is instead a straightforward depiction of the weapon, boldly asking the viewer to reflect on the impact of gun violence and its role in media and society. Warhol’s Gun is in pristine condition, and is authenticated by both the Andy Warhol Foundation, and the Estate of Andy Warhol.
