This museum art print is of an original photographic silkscreen print by Andy Warhol. The work was part of the Pop artist,s 1985 Reigning Queens, portfolio. This portrait of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark was based on an official photograph of the monarch. The vibrant colours and suggestion of make-up enhance the glamour and femininity of the royal figure. Warhol incorporated abstract blocks of flat colour that, although screenprinted, appear collaged. He also combined printed elements derived from drawings, which emphasise details such as the jewellery. The print brings together many of Warhol,s central themes ヨ celebrity, portraiture, consumerism, decoration and the extremes of social hierarchy. It is the perfect example of Warhol,s ability to transform the entire medium of traditional portraiture and translate it to contemporary, political relevance.

About The Artist - Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol (born Andrew Warhola) (American, 1928-1987) was a leading figure in the Pop art movement. His work included painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, sculpture, film and music. Fascinated with celebrity culture and status, his silkscreens of pop icons and mundane objects, were particularly successful and cemented his place as a “celebrity” artist. Some of his best known works include Campbell's Soup Cans (1962) and Marilyn Diptych (1962).
