Historical Description

Featuring a unique color palette of beige, lilac, and lime green Andy Warhol Northwest Coast Mask from the Cowboys and Indians series, 1986 makes a direct impression on the viewer. The beautiful details of this tribal mask come to life from the serious face to the animals that join together above the head to form a crowning shape. Warhol’s famous Cowboys and Indians series took famous imagery from the American West and brightly colorized it, like he did with other images from advertising and pop culture. Part of this series included taking Native American stereotypes and placing them next to portraits of American Western ‘heroes’ such as Annie Oakley and John Wayne. By doing so, Warhol challenges popular ideas about the American West and stereotypes that were held at the time.
