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.
“Blackglama”, is part of Andy Warhol’s Ads suite printed in 1985, Judy Garland selling Blackglama minks was a famous ad campaign created by Jane Trahey (one of the first women to open her own advertising firm, in 1960) in which famous women were used as the gimmick to sell Blackglama’s elegant products. The women were to symbolize everything that the photo of the product could not convey alone. The photograph was taken by Richard Avedon. The powerful tagline, “What Becomes a Legend most?” was credited with making Blackglama the most powerful name in mink coats within just two years.
“Blackglama” was created in Andy Warhol’s vibrant color scheme style and it is a 38 x 38 – inch unique trial-proof hand-signed screen-print.
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.
