(1971)
Andy Warhol Collection
In the 1950’s Marilyn was almost considered as a product: a male fantasy adored by all, her every film mobbed by crowds. Monroe: subject of novels, scandals, films, photographs, and Monroe: subject of Andy. August 5th 1962, the actress commits suicide; Andy Warhol begins the Marilyn series.
Warhol retained one of the most famous photographs of the star: a portrait of her radiant face shot by Gene Korman in 1953 for the promotion of the movie Niagara. Now reduced down to its basic features, the face acquires a greater visual power: the sweet blonde is replaced by a garish icon, a style achieved by the extreme simplification of the portrait, the artificial addition of the vibrant colors and the use of mechanical multiplication obtained from the screen-printing technique.This technique - which Warhol had learned when he worked in the advertising industry- allowed him to construct a modular motif that varied constantly and yet remained essentially the same. Whilst colour plays an obvious role in drawing in the viewer, the ever-present link with death makes itself felt. With Warhol the repetition of the motif often relates to its exhaustion.
