Historical Description

Andy Warhol Northwest Coast Mask, 1986 from Cowboys and Indians is a striking example of the artist’s editioned screenprints. The image of the mask takes up the entire composition, with dark and rich colors. Maroons, royal blues, and sunset oranges work together to create an intimidating and intricate image of a Native American mask with delicate golden yellow lines tracing the mask’s features. Warhol’s famous Cowboys and Indians series took famous imagery from the American West and brightly colorized it, like he did with other images from advertising and pop culture. Part of this series included taking Native American stereotypes and placing them next to portraits of American Western ‘heroes’ such as Annie Oakley and John Wayne. By doing so, Warhol challenged popular ideas about the American West and stereotypes that were held at the time.

Created in 1986, this screenprint on Lenox Museum Board is hand signed by Andy Warhol (Pennsylvania, 1928 - New York, 1987) in pencil in the lower right. Numbered from the edition of 250 in pencil in the lower right; aside from the edition of 50 artist’s proofs, 15 printer’s proofs, 15 HC, and 10 numbered in Roman numerals; printed by Rupert Jasen Smith, New York; published by Gaultney, Klineman Art, Inc., New York.
