Beethoven - Enamel on porcelain. Ludwig van Beethoven has been regarded as one of the most famous composers of all time. Andy Warhol captures in this picture one of the most iconic poses of the famous composer, Beethoven FS II.391, higlighting the sheer brilliance of the composer with the emphasis on the notes of his sheet music, while also keeping the features of the portrait prominent. The soft melody of Beethoven’s enchanting Sonata No.14 is captured across Beethoven’s face in the form of notes. The notes, like the melody, are drawn graceful as not to overshadow the man of the hour: Beethoven.
Warhol created this series in 1987, shortly before his death. What is so unique about this series is how it contradicts the common-held perception that Warhol’s subject matter was limited to movie stars and grocery store items. This painting of Beethoven illustrates Warhol’s appreciation for as well as his influence from many different sources, such as classical and romantic composers. The many different colors shown might have been used to represent the struggle and turmoil of Beethoven’s life. Beethoven was a very famous composer, but began to lose his hearing early in his life, the worst thing that could happen to a composer. The colors almost represent the different moods human beings encounter.
