Historical Description

Andy Warhol Paramount,  1985 Unique Acrylic on Canvas re-imagines the iconic logo of the titular American film studio. Warhol alters the colors from his source imagery, but despite the departure from the trademarked version, the inspiration is still legible. On a pristine white background,  a shimmery turquoise fills the half-circle of the backdrop sky and the shadows of the Peruvian mountain peak . Crowning it is a circlet of stars, washed in a gradient of sunset colors. Amidst the stunning coloration, Warhol inserts a few reminders of the advertisement inspiration. If not for the commercial typeface which boldly declares the parent conglomerate corporation of Paramount in Sans-Serif letter ‘A Gulf + Western Company’ and the registered trademark symbol ® in the lower right, the viewer almost forgets the commercial nature of the subject

Created in 1985, Andy Warhol Paramount  is a unique acrylic and screenprint enamel on canvas. This work is hand signed by Andy Warhol (Pennsylvania, 1928 - New York, 1987) in ink on verso. This is a unique and original work.
