Andy Warhol Bald Eagle from the Endangered Species Series, 1983 is electrically eye-catching, depicting the iconic profile of an eagle. This work is numbered from the edition 150. The magnificent form of the bird is made here all the more stunning by the energetic and bright colors, which fills the piece with sharp contrast. The eagle, outlined with buzzing lines of blue and red, fills the visual field and creates a dynamic diagonal movement. The glowing pink background meets sharply with the black of the eagle’s wings, further adding to the overall exuberance of the piece. Instead of showing the entire eagle, Warhol here crops in closely on its head and beak, making it appear larger than life and reminding us of the beauty and importance of this endangered bird. This unique trial proof is a gorgeous example of Warhol’s groundbreaking style, combining recognizable imagery with fantastic colors to create a truly unforgettable work.
