Vote McGovern 84 was created for the George McGovern Presidential campaign in 1972. Rather than portray McGovern in his piece, Warhol decided to represent the opponent in a negative light. Warhol’s demonic portrait of Richard Nixon, with blue skin and orange eyes leaves no doubt as to the artist’s political position, even without the graffiti scrawl on the bottom “Vote McGovern.” The vibrant reds and oranges surrounding Nixon’s face give the impression that he is erupting in flames.
