About

Andy Warhol created his portfolio, Flash – November 22, 1963, based on images from mass media related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Flash includes 11 screenprints assembled in a book that features text taken straight from newspapers, which is where the portfolio gets its title of Flash – November 22, 1963. Warhol layered recognizable images, including multiple images of Jackie Kennedy, multiple images of a smiling JFK, and the photo of the building from which JFK was shot from with an arrow pointing to the window where Lee Harvey Oswald stood. Andy Warhol was fascinated with the Kennedy assassination and the media’s depiction of it. The Flash portfolio exemplifies his obsession with the combination of tragedy and celebrity. This Flash portfolio is in pristine condition, includes all 11 screenprints with matching edition numbers, and is signed by Andy Warhol. Please feel free to reach out for additional photos.

About the Artist

Andy Warhol

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, Warhol 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. The 1967 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.Find a collection of original Andy Warhol art on 1stDibs.
