Historical Description

Warhol's Camouflage portfolio is inspired by military clothing from an army surplus store in New York city. The artist completed his Camouflage portfolio with his assistant Jay Shriver shortly before his passing in 1987. Andy Warhol’s Camouflage FS II.413 is an energetic print featuring small abstracted shapes in a beautiful and pleasing color palette of oranges, yellow, green and blue. The unusual color choices Warhol chose would never camouflage its wearer into any environment which defeats the purpose of the print entirely. This is the genius of the Camouflage portfolio: in creating camouflage patterns in outrageously bright colors, it renders the pattern useless. By taking away the pattern's practical use, Warhol forces us to view it as an art object instead.
