Andy Warhol: Ingrid Bergman

In 1983, Andy Warhol was commissioned by a Swedish art gallery to portray one of the country’s most famous starlets: Ingrid Bergman. Warhol, who famously painted celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, and Elizabeth Taylor in the 1960s, had developed a new style of portraiture in the 1980s. During this era, Warhol would illustrate details in the face, hair, and clothing through delicate outlines—an homage to his early career as a commercial illustrator—and fill his backgrounds with bold, geometric blocks of color. Using this approach, Warhol created three portraits of Bergman: With Hat, The Nun, and Herself, finding source images for each portrayal from the classic film Casablanca (1942), the silent picture The Bell of St. Mary’s (1945), and a publicity photograph of the actress.
