In September 1974 Warhol painted nine portraits of his mothe Julia Warhola. These were the last paintings made at the 33 Union Square studio.
The photo Warhol used as a source for the paintings has not been identified so far but it appears to date from the lats 50´s around the same time Duane Michal´s photographs of Warhol and his mother.

No print edition was ever made. This particular print is unique in it´s color variation. We have seen four different impressions this being one of them.. Red, Pink, Orange and Green. All probably color test prints. Approximately same size.
Most warhol paintings has the silk screened color as black. But not the paintings of Julia Warhola.

Not in Feldman & Schellmann.

Printer: Alexander Heinrici, New York (Presumed as Heinrici did all the 1974 printing).

Private collection NYC.

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.

American, 1928-1987, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, based in New York, New York
