An important event of the Post-War era initially captured on camera and broadcast worldwide on 20th July 1969, has since been celebrated as the defining moment of the Twentieth Century. Firmly established as a leading artist of the Pop art movement and an international celebrity, Warhol is best known for appropriating images from popular culture. His historic representation of Moonwalk, remains as relevant and iconic as the moon landing itself. Completed almost two decades after the Apollo 11 mission, Andy Warhol’s Moonwalk was conceived as a result of the NASA Art Program which was created in 1961, just four years after the agency’s establishment. NASA Administrator James Webb expressed interest in creating an art program to commemorate both past and future events capturing the emotions of explorations, in a way in which history could look back and appreciate all that the agency achieved. The Moonwalk prints were initially intended to be part of a portfolio entitled “Works on the TV” that would depict important images from the history of television in America, including “I Love Lucy”, Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech and the Beatles first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. The image shown by the prints however never appeared on television despite Warhol intending them to form part a television portfolio. The Moonwalk was the only composition from the series that was printed due to Warhol’s untimely death months later. In creating his famous work, Warhol used a combination of two photographs taken by Neil Armstrong of Buzz Aldrin Junior. The first image is the photo where Buzz Aldrin salutes the US flag on the moon, landing site of Apollo 11, June 1969. The second photo shows Buzz Aldrin Junior as illustrated. Fifty years later, as the world gets ready to celebrate this extraordinary achievement of mankind, in Moonwalk, we can only acknowledge Warhol’s genius in eternalising this remarkable feet in such a seminal depiction.

By the late 1970s, his visual idiom was known throughout the world. The Warhol look had itself become part of popular culture, as recognisable as Coca-Cola. It was therefore only natural that Warhol should turn, at this point of his intensely successful career, to his own images as sources for his work. And of these, perhaps his Marilyns were the best known Warhol pictures. These works had gained him notoriety and had entered the cultural ether in a revolutionary and complete way that almost no art had managed before it. Rather than merely revisit his own older work, Warhol created a new visual idiom in order to reincarnate, to rebottle, his classic theme: the negative image. The ‘Reversal Series’ introduces an aesthetic that pulses with electricity. Warhol was a tireless innovator, and the negative images that he used in the Reversal Series showed his continuing willingness to experiment. Alongside the Reversals, we see works that show the artist to have been brimming with pioneering ideas, both in terms of content and of technique. Fusing both content and technique, Reversal Marilyns reveals the natural evolution of the thinking that lay behind Warhol’s Pop.

In December of that year he hand-cut the Rubylith stencils for the key (outline) relief plates for each image, and in February 1994 he made his first visit to the workshop for this project. Most of the plates used to print the series were assembled using an aluminium or in some cases Lexan – a rigid, thick plastic – base plate on which were mounted the irregularly shaped photopolymer plastic pieces that created the image areas. The key (outline) plates, with one exception, were made of an irregularly shaped magnesium plate mounted onto a base plate. (For one key plate, the irregularly shaped plate was made of plastic.) Based on “love” and “girl” comic-book illustrations, not live models, these were the artist’s first images of the subject. Soon thereafter he explored the theme in his painting. The series, which consists of six images and three states, also contains iconographic references to others of his earlier works: the Mirrors, Imperfects, Waterlilies, and Interiors. Lichtenstein had often before used variable-sized dots in his images, but the dots in the Nudes series have a new characteristic, creating an undulation of light and space by flowing over several objects at a time, rather than being contained within the boundaries of a single object or outline. The dots function as both a two-dimensional pattern (overlay) and as a suggestion of three-dimensional space and form. Lichtenstein is quoted in a newspaper article in November 1994 as having said that the nude form itself is “a good excuse to contrast undulating volumetric form with rigid geometry.” This same contrast of undulation and rigidity can be seen in the dot patterns themselves, which cause the picture space seemingly to undulate forward and away from the picture plane, while at the same time each dot is a precise geometric circle.

Following an early career as a commercial illustrator, Warhol achieved fame with his revolutionary series of silkscreened prints and paintings of familiar objects, such as Campbell's soup tins, and celebrities, such as Marilyn Monroe. Obsessed with popular culture, celebrity and advertising, Warhol created his slick, seemingly mass-produced images of everyday subject matter from his famed Factory studio in New York City. His use of mechanical methods of reproduction, notably the commercial technique of silk screening, wholly evolutionized art-making. Working as an artist, but also director and producer, Warhol produced a number of avantgarde films in addition to managing the experimental rock band The Velvet Underground and founding Interview magazine. A central figure in the New York art scene until his untimely death in 1987, Warhol was notably also a mentor to such artists as Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Grace Kelly was created in 1984 with the consent of the Princess Grace Foundation, USA, based on a film still from the 1951 film Fourteen Hours. Stamped in black on verso, © Andy Warhol 1984 Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania with the consent of the Princess Grace Foundation, U.S.A.

In 1977, Andy Warhol received a commission from the art collector and sports enthusiast, Richard Weisman to create a sports figures, among them Chris Evert, Pele, Dorothy Hamill, Jack Nicklaus, Kareem Abdul Jabaar. Muhammad Ali, 1978 was the first published edition portfolio depicting a sports figure, inspired by this commission. By the time Warhol created Muhammad Ali, he was himself enough of a celebrity that, rather than rely on the found images that had been his source material earlier in his career, he was able to photograph the boxer in person. Executed in 1978, Warhol's picture of Muhammad Ali shows the boxer at the height of his fame. At that point he was - for the third time - the World Boxing Association Heavyweight Champion. After more than a decade of professional bouts, he remained able to stun his opponents with his agility, winning fight after fight. Warhol has chosen to portray this giant of boxing, this sporting hero, in a combative pose; the raised fists are the tools of his trade, the attributes, his only necessary paraphernalia - they are the raw Muhammad Ali is materials with which the boxer made his name and reputation. presented here as a Pop icon, a god of the modern age, a contemporary hero.

In 1975, art dealer Luciano Anselmino for whom Warhol had previously completed an edition of his Man Ray portrait commissioned Warhol to produce a series of drag queens. Under Warhol’s instruction, Bob Colacello went to The Gilded Grape, a club frequented by trans people and drag performers of colour, to recruit several willing participants. These individuals were offered $50 an hour in exchange for their portrait. Never introduced to Warhol by name, the sitters arrived at the Factory and had their polaroid taken. Describing these images in a review of the paintings in October 1975, Pier Paolo Pasolini wrote: ‘…It is to be noticed that the photographs always seemed to be obsessively the same, always from the front or form a three-quarter view, never in profile: always “posed”, never from life, always in the manner of the film “Stars”, never in the manner of everyday passing shots.’ In their poses, these sitters were placed on equal footing with the cultural icons Warhol had previously depicted. Similarities in pose, collaged colour and androgyny can be drawn between these sitters and the Mick Jagger series produced the same year. Both of these new series of prints are exhibited at Max Protect gallery in December 1975 along with ‘Gerald Ford Political Portraits, Flowers and other Warhol favourites. The sitters here included: Alphanso Panell, Broadway, Wilhelmina Ross, Monique, Marsha P. Johnson, Iris, Easha McCleary, and Vicki Peters.
