Andy Warhol: Advertisements

Life Savers, Chanel perfumes, Liza Minnelli, and Donald Duck come together in Andy Warhol’s “Advertisements.” Commissioned in 1985 by Feldman Fine Arts just two years before the artist’s early death at the age of 58, the “Ads Portfolio” is a product of Warhol’s laser focus on celebrity and obsessive interest in American consumerism. The 10 resulting prints—appropriated from then-familiar ads and rendered as works of fine art in Warhol’s signature technicolor silkscreens—blur the line between mass-marketed images in magazines and fine art paintings only for the wealthy elite. In this series, Andy Warhol’s career truly comes full circle, blending his early days as a commercial illustrator with his mature Pop style.
