Andy Warhol Marilyn Monroe (Marilyn), 1967 is a stunning artwork than demonstrates the genius of pop artist Andy Warhol. A candy-coated palette of shimmery silver, tangerine, teal and sweet pastels pink  sparkle in this large format screenprint of glitterati seductress Marilyn Monroe. With Marilyn as the subject and Warhol as the creator, this work is an explosive double cultural icon that represents the American art scene in the 1960s and 70s. Andy Warhol’s image of Marilyn has become canonized as the essential memorable representation of the tragic starlet. The flashy hyper-coloring employed by Warhol captures Marilyn’s exterior sexy stardom of her public persona, while simultaneously, the color distortions seem to reflect her tormented personal life. While the coloration of the portrait is far from realistic, it is precisely this contentious artistic decision that makes the image human. Warhol's fascination with Monroe is clearly evident in striking rendering, and the iconic beauty lives on through his artwork.

Created in 1967, this color screenprint on paper is hand signed by Andy Warhol (Pennsylvania, 1928 - New York, 1987) in pencil on verso. Numbered from the edition of 250 with a rubber stamp on verso; aside from the edition of 26 artist proofs lettered A-Z on verso.
