ANDY WARHOL "INDIAN" GIANT POSTER, 1977
Some critics claim that for most of the 1970's and into the 80's Warhol had lost his edge -becoming consumed will producing a never-ending supply of commissioned portraits.
While we won't dispute that portrait production became excessive, Warhol still created some clever and memorable series of work during the last 15 years of his life (notably "Camouflage" "Shadows" "Ladies & Gentlemen" and "Flowers - Hand Colored" to mention a few) .
This is a giant exhibition poster from the 1977 exhibition "American Indian" - which focused on portraits of Russell Means.
Unlike commissioned portraits of the era, Warhol used publicity shots (similar to earlier works of Liz, Marilyn and Elvis) to depict this Native American actor.
Unlike similar work from the 1960's Warhol did more hand embellishments to these silkscreens on canvas.
This poster is a fantastic and impressive Warhol creation that has maximum impact at an affordable price.
