Catalogue Note

A rare example of his self-portraits from the 1960s, this painting captures Warhol at his creative peak. Intrigued with the visual power of images in an age where television and printed media for the first time brought celebrity portraits into every American household, the artist’s own portraits have become as iconic as his depictions of Marilyn Monroe, Liz Taylor and Jackie Kennedy. Using his outstanding skills as a colourist, Warhol’s Self Portrait captures the artist’s own image in bright red and green, almost morphing into abstraction yet still clearly recognizable as Warhol’s iconic figure.
