Andy Warhol Marcia Weisman screenprint, 1975 is a portrait of avid art collector Marcia Weisman. Born in Portland, Oregon, with a degree from Mills College in Oakland, California, there is no denying that Marcia Simon Weisman was a woman of versatility. With an affinity for Post War American Art, she and her ex-husband, Fredrick Weisman, amassed one of the finest private art collections in the world. Helping to found the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, Marcia gave priceless works from her private collection away to a number of other museums all in the name of supporting the arts and artist’s. One such artist was Warhol who featured prominently in her collection, and in Andy Warhol screenprint Marcia Weisman, 1975, he creates a beautiful homage to his friend and supporter with fresh colors of yellows and pinks (wish a dash of green) as her striking profile smiles out at us amidst Warhol's signature style of colors blocks.
Created in 1975, this color screenprint on Arches aquarelle paper is hand-signed by Andy Warhol (Pennsylvania, 1928 - New York, 1987) in pencil on verso; also hand-signed with his initials ‘AW’ in pencil in lower left.
