MARILYN MONROE (FS II.22)

Warhol’s Marilyn images are some of his most iconic works. The piece is one of a series of ten screenprints he created based on an photo believed to have been taken by Gene Korman as a publicity shot for her 1953 film Niagara. Warhol began producing his Marilyn portraits shortly after her death in 1962. It has been said that Warhol created an icon out of an icon.

Marilyn Monroe (FS II.22) is framed, signed in pencil on verso, numbered and stamped by the Andy Warhol Authentication Board on verso (numbered A1029.108). It is in overall good condition.

MARILYN MONROE (FS II.22) AS PART OF ANDY WARHOL’S LARGER BODY OF WORK

After the the success of the Campbell’s Soup series in the early 1960s, Warhol began creating screenprints of movie star portraits including Elvis Presley and Elizabeth Taylor. In addition, Warhol worked with his Superstar performers and various other people to create hundreds of films between 1963 and 1968. These films were scripted and improvised, ranging from conceptual experiments and simple narratives to short portraits and sexploitation features. His works include Empire (1964), The Chelsea Girls (1966), and The Screen Tests (1964-66). Warhol also expanded into the realm of performance art with a traveling multimedia show between 1966 and 1967, called The Exploding Plastic Inevitable, which featured the rock band The Velvet Underground.
