His iconic world illustrated celebrity culture, artistic expression and advertisement. He utilized a multitude of medias including hand drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, silk screening, sculpture, film and music. He had a studio called The Factory, where intellectuals, drag queens, playwrights, Bohemian street people, Hollywood celebrities and wealthy patrons would collaborate.In the 1960s, Andy Warhol created several mass-produced” images from photographs of celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley and Jackie Onassis. In August 1962, Andy Warhol began to produce paintings using the screenprinting process. He recalls, The rubber-stamp method I’d been using to repeat images suddenly seemed too homemade; I wanted something stronger that gave more of an assembly-line effect. With silkscreening you pick a photograph, blow it up, transfer it in glue onto silk, and then roll ink across it so the ink goes through the silk but not through the glue. That way you get the same image, slightly different each time. It all sounds so simple””quick and chancy. I was thrilled with it. My first experiments with screens were heads of Troy Donahue and Warren Beatty, and then when Marilyn Monroe happened to die that month (August 1962), I got the idea to make screens of her beautiful face.”

Diameter: 8 1/4 inches
