The untimely death of American film star turned Princess of Monaco Grace Kelly shook the arts and entertainment world to its core. Beloved not only for her cinematic career, but also for her dedication to philanthropy, the arts, and her sweet and kind nature, James Stewart remarked in his eulogy that seeing her ‘was a holiday on its own.’ As a tribute to her legacy of supporting the arts, Andy Warhol created this piece 2 years after her death to benefit the Institute of Contemporary Arts at the University of Pennsylvania, her hometown university. In this piece, Warhol highlights some of her most beloved and enigmatic features, making her eyes in particular look as though they are cutting through the artwork and into the viewer.
