Andy Warhol created Ingrid Bergman (The Nun) 314 for his Ingrid Bergman series in 1983. This print features a movie still from the 1945 movie The Bells of St. Mary that stars Bergman. Warhol chose this role of Bergman because critics considered Sister Mary to be one of Bergman’s standout roles for the depth she brought to the character. The image features Bergman in full nun garb praying. Warhol employs his signature pop art color blocking in orange, yellow, blue, and pink highlighted by yellow tracing of the outline of Bergman. This series also features a publicity photo and a movie still from Casablanca to round out the portfolio. Ingrid Bergman (The Nun) 314 by Andy Warhol is popular among collectors because of the popularity of Ingrid Bergman and the pop art style that transform a moving image.

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.
