Ten Marilyns, 1967 poster by Andy Warhol


Artist: Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol’s series of silkscreen paintings of Marilyn Monroe immediately followed her suicide in August 1962. Warhol’s statement on the subject linked Marilyn with the origins of his Death and Disaster series of paintings when he said "I guess it was the big plane crash picture, the front page of a newspaper: 129 DIE. I was also painting the Marilyns. I realised that everything I was doing must have been Death." All of his photo-silkscreened paintings and screenprints are based on the same source image of a publicity photo of Marilyn Monroe for her 1953 film Niagara.

Approximate dimensions: 56 × 134 cm

Note, this poster comes with a white border with text regarding artist's name, print title and publishing details near the bottom edge.
