About the WorkObsessed with celebrity, consumer culture, and mechanical (re)production, Pop artist Andy Warhol created some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. Famous for his quips as for his art—he variously mused that “art is what you can get away with” and “everyone will be famous for 15 minutes”—Warhol drew widely from popular culture and everyday subject matter, creating works like his 32 Campbell's Soup Cans (1962), Brillo pad box sculptures, and portraits of Marilyn Monroe, using the medium of silk-screen printmaking to achieve his characteristic hard edges and flat areas of color. Known for his cultivation of celebrity, Factory studio (a radical social and creative melting pot), and avant-garde films like Chelsea Girls (1966), Warhol was also a mentor to artists like Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
“John Wayne” was created as part of ‘Cowboys and Indians” which is a collection of prints published in 1986 and it is believed to be Andy Warhol’s last series of paintings before his death in 1987.
Andy Warhol created “John Wayne” just seven years after Wayne’s death, and he relied on a publicity photo of Wayne from The Man Who Shot Liberty Vance (1962) to create the print. John Wayne (1907-1979) is one of America’s most beloved movie stars and is widely regarded as an honest, hardworking man who represents a golden age in American cinema, culture and values. Best-known for roles as a cowboy, soldier or athlete, Wayne was – and still is - viewed by many Americans as the ideal man’s man and hero. “John Wayne” is a unique trial-proof and one of just 36 such variously colored proofs created as part of the total edition of 376 screen-prints, signed and numbered lower left.

About the Artist
Andy Warhol is seen as one of the most prolific American artists of all time, whose undeniable influence proved him to be a leading figure within the Pop Art and Culture Movement. Warhol was a multitalented individual; he was an artist, filmmaker, producer, designer, and photographer. Warhol was born on August 06, 1926 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. From an early age, Warhol was interested in the arts as he was often sick at home than at school. Rather isolated due to childhood illnesses, a young Warhol entertained himself by drawing and with other artistic hobbies. Eventually, Warhol graduated high school with aspirations to become an illustrator in the world of advertising. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from the Carnegie Mellon University of Technology and moved to New York to pursue his creative dream.
