About

Andy Warhol Grace Kelly. F&S ll.305, 1984 Scrrenprint on Lenox Museum Board 40h x 32w in 101.60h x 81.28w cm 46/225 ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Grace Kelly was an American film actress and Princess of Monaco. In 1950, at the age of 20, Grace Kelly appeared in New York theatrical productions and over 40 episodes of live drama productions. In 1953, she became a movie star with the premiere of Mogambo, but retired shortly afterwards when she married Prince Rainier. Grace Kelly is well known for her beauty and elegance, which is captured in this portrait with Warhols attention to her perfectly sleeked back hair, plump red lips, and almost pristine glow to her skin. She has been regarded as one of the top ranks in the list of top female stars in American cinema. GRACE KELLY 305 AS A PART OF ANDY WARHOLS LARGER BODY OF WORK After the success of the Campbells Soup series in the early 1960s, Warhol began creating screenprints of movie star and celebrity portraits including well known American pop culture figures like Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, and Elizabeth Taylor. He often created these iconic works in honor of these stars after their deaths. Warhol completed this portrait of the Grace Kelly two years after her tragic death at the age of 52. This piece was completed for a fundraiser for the ICA, the Institute of Contemporary Art, which was the university museum of Philadelphia. Grace Kelly was born in Philadelphia and her parents were active participants in the university community, making the dedication of this artwork very sentimental.

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.
