Historical Description

Andy Warhol’s Camouflage portfolio was the last body of work Warhol created before his passing in 1987. The series centers on different variations of a camouflage print that was based on military clothing his assistant Jay Shriver picked up from an army surplus store in New York City. Camouflage FS II.406 sticks closest to a standard military camouflage print with its different shades of green. Abstract shapes interact with each other in random twists and turns. Since Warhol chose to focus on extreme close-ups of the print, the work takes on a graphic element and takes the print out of its context, allowing the viewer to instead focus on its shapes and colors.

Created in 1987, Andy Warhol Camouflage, FS II.406 is a screenprint on Lenox Museum Board. This work is hand-signed by Andy Warhol (Pittsburgh, 1928 - New York, 1987) in pencil on verso. Numbered from the edition of 80.

This print is one of eight screenprints in Warhol’s Camouflage portfolio, created in 1987.
