Andy Warhol, the leading figure of the Pop-Art vanguard in 1960, he is now one of the most acclaimed figures of his time. He was a highly skilled multidisciplinary artist who raised controversial and necessary conversations between the value of fine art and commercial art with his practice. Warhol was a Pop-Culture lover, and by the end of the '60s, Warhol started following a less commercial path. At the beginning of the '70s, Warhol began to dedicate most of his time to social events and portraitures.
Example of that is this exclusive portrait of the visionary art dealer and godmother of Pop Art, Dorothy Blau. Credited by Warhol as a lifetime friend and a critical pillar to his rise to international fame, Blau’s attractive and rejuvenated portrait effuses respect and admiration. The print is vibrantly colored, rendering the background in a lush cornflower blue, ultimately bringing her timeless iconic status to life. Although Andy Warhol comes by as a reference to the consumerist culture, he was a lover for everything that had to do with beauty, celebrity and wealth, making him an excellent acquisition for any luxurious space.
