Andy Warhol John Wayne from the Cowboys and Indians Series, 1986 is a dramatic graphic portrait of the Western movie Star. Leaning across the composition in a dramatic diagonal line, led by the titled barrel of his gun, Wayne looks out into the distance. Deep red shadows thrown across his face, itself a brighter crimson hue, make for an instantly arresting image. The silhouette of the actor stands out sharply against the clean white background, creating a negative space that's just as beautiful in its own right. The color palette is a pared-down selection of reds, blacks, and yellows, creating the atmosphere of a setting sun. This further adds to the Western narrative of the work, albeit in a decidedly Pop-like manner, attesting to Warhol's ability to both smartly appropriate an image and pay it respect.
