About

BROOKLYN BRIDGE 290 Warhol’s Brooklyn Bridge multi color screenprint demonstrates the color block technique as well as multi-layer runs of the subject to create a three dimensional aesthetic. Warhol divides the piece in half to create two angles of the bridge, which keeps the eye engaged all throughout the work and veers away from a traditional depiction of a monument in his style of Pop Art. His use of bold colors such as red, blue, green and black for shadowing create a harmony and a depth within the print. Warhol used a photo based printing technique to create this piece, where a photo taken of the subject is exposed in a darkroom to the screen itself. Similar to darkroom photography, the image is then exposed onto the screen print in a way that the artist is able to print in as many runs as necessary. This also allows the artist to change the color of ink in which the next layer will be printed on the same piece. This iconic work was created to celebrate the Brooklyn Bridge’s 100th Anniversary as Warhol was commissioned by the Brooklyn Centennial Commission to commemorate the bridge’s centennial. Warhol’s powerful image simulates the opposing viewpoints by dividing the picture plane into a top and bottom half, which creates two landscape compositions in one piece. Warhol’s depiction of the bridge gives a playful humor to the celebration of the structure in his distinct style and was successful in that Warhol’s image served as the official artwork for the citywide event.

About Andy Warhol (Artist)

The name of American artist Andy Warhol is all but synonymous with Pop art, the movement he helped shape in the 1960s. He is known for his clever appropriation of motifs and images from popular advertising and commercials, which he integrated into graphic, vibrant works that utilized mass-production technologies such as printmaking, photography and silkscreening. Later in his career, he expanded his oeuvre to include other forms of media, founding Interview magazine and producing fashion shoots and films on-site at the Factory, his world-famous studio in New York.


     Born and educated in in Pittsburgh, Warhol moved to New York City in 1949 and built a successful career as a commercial illustrator. Although he made whimsical drawings as a hobby during these years, his career as a fine artist began in the mid-1950s with ink-blot drawings and hand-drawn silkscreens. The 1955 lithograph You Can Lead a Shoe to Water illustrates how he incorporated in his artwork advertising styles and techniques, in this case shoe commercials.


     As a child, Warhol was often sick and spent much of his time in bed, where he would make sketches and put together collections of movie-star photographs. He described this period as formative in terms of his skills and interests. Indeed, Warhol remained obsessed with celebrities throughout his career, often producing series devoted to a famous face or an object from the popular culture, such as Chairman Mao or Campbell’s tomato soup. The1967 silkscreen Marilyn 25 embodies his love of bright color and famous subjects.


     Warhol was a prominent cultural figure in New York during the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s. The Factory was a gathering place for the era’s celebrities, writers, drag queens and fellow artists, and collaboration was common. To this day, Warhol remains one of the most important artists of the 20th century and continues to exert influence on contemporary creators.
