Andy Warhol Vote McGovern, 1972 is a probing representation of one of the most infamous presidents in history, Richard Nixon. In this work, the artist chooses an image of the political leader in which he appears to be particularly menacing and unnerving. Nixon shows his teeth as he looks upwards beyond the viewer. Warhol accentuates his expression by illustrating his skin in a greenish blue color which contrasts its orange background. In the lower margin of the work, the artist writes the words “Vote McGovern,” from which the piece gains its title.
Created in 1972, this screenprint on Arches 88 paper work is hand-signed by Andy Warhol (Pennsylvania, 1928 - New York, 1987) in ball-point pen on verso and numbered from the edition of 250 in ball-point pen on verso.
