Unsigned from an edition of unknown. Published by The Jewish Museum, NY, 1980. Rare. Further Background: Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century” depicts figures from Andy Warhol’s personal pantheon of great thinkers, politicians and performers from the Jewish culture. Famous for his preoccupation with celebrities, here Warhol’s critique of modern pop-culture is reiterated: the idea of being obsessed with stars without knowing in depth any celebrity is famous for. These are reproduction prints published by the Jewish Museum for the purposes of the 1980 exhibition and are not the original screen prints. Obsessed with celebrity, consumer culture, and mechanical reproduction, Pop Art king, Andy Warhol created some of the 20th century’s most iconic images. Warhol was widely influenced by popular & consumer culture, with this being evident in some of his most famous works: 32 Campbell's soup cans, Brillo pad box sculptures, and portraits of Marilyn Monroe & Mick Jagger, for example. Rejecting the standard painting and sculpting modes of his era, Warhol embraced silk-screen printmaking to achieve his characteristic hard edges and flat areas of color. The artist mentored Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat and continues to influence contemporary art around the world: His most bold successors include Richard Prince, Takashi Murakami, and Jeff Koons. Warhol has been the subject of exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Museum of Modern Art, Tate Modern, and Centre Pompidou, among other institutions.
