The beauty of Marilyn Monroe is abstracted yet emphasized with Warhol’s saturated palette of unrealistic hues. In the cropped and square composition, Marilyn’s features are showcased in full view. A stunning and memorable stand-out piece from Andy Warhol’s celebrated series of ten Marilyn Monroe portraits in different color combinations, Marilyn Monroe (Marilyn), 1967 is immortalized through Andy Warhol’s artistry.
