Description — Click to read

Portraying a sketched version of Chairman Mao Zedong, this print by Andy Warhol explores representations of the iconic Chinese leader. By turning visual propaganda on its head, Warhol’s Mao is rendered with a humorous and playful quality, heightened by a large purple oval. This print was originally conceived for Warhol’s exhibition at the Musée Galliera, Paris, in 1974, and was reprinted by the Museum of Modern Art, New York, for a posthumous retrospective of the artist in 1989/90.
