This print is one of a series of 232 works by Warhol depicting firearms. Death emerged as a distinctive theme in Warhol,s work in the 1960s, with his Death and Disaster, series. His fears about dying were heightened in 1968 when he was shot and critically injured by Valerie Solanas. This gun is similar to the .22 snub-nosed pistol that she used. At the same time as he was painting guns Warhol was also doing a series of knife pictures.
