Andy Warhol created After the Party in 1979. An example of Warhol’s still life artwork, this print depicts the aftermath of a dinner party. Warhol highlights the scattered array of drinking glasses, wine bottles, and other dishware with rainbow outlines, accentuating the objects and the inherent frenzy of the lifestyle Warhol depicted. Andy was known for abundant partying, and After the Party illustrates the chaos inherent to that lifestyle. Based on a black and white photograph, Warhol uses the colorful to gradient to animate the still life. This rainbow roll drawing line varies from print to print. After the Party is exemplary of Warhol’s unique pop art style, and comes framed to museum standards.

About Andy Warhol

Obsessed with celebrity, consumer culture, and mechanical (re)production, Pop artist Andy Warhol created some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. As 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. His Pop sensibility is now standard practice, taken up by major contemporary artists Richard Prince, Takashi Murakami, and Jeff Koons, among countless others.
