Andy Warhol Grapes, 1979 FS II.192 is the third screenprint in the artist's Grapes series. Warhol created six vibrant screenprints featuring different strains of grapes, exploring the genre of still life in his own stylistic way. This specific print is probably the most realistic in terms of color out of the six works. Warhol chose a deep purple for the grapes, flat washes of the color are overlaid atop the sketch of the fruity bunch. Thin green vines sprout down from the top of the composition. Warhol completes the palette with a royal blue background and a warm sandy beige as shadow accents, creating a full and vibrant work altogether. Warhol had designed a label for famous French winery, Chateau Mouton Rothschild, a few years before in 1975. The winery invites artists each year to design new wine bottle labels, leading to exciting and unique artistic collaborations from artists around the world.
Created in 1977, this work is a screenprint on Strathmore Bristol paper, hand signed by Andy Warhol in felt pen in the lower right. Numbered from an edition of 50, aside from 10 Artist Proofs marked 'AP,' two Printer's Proof marked 'PP,' and one Hors Commerce marked 'HC.'
