LITTLE BOOK OF ART



Black Rhino, from Endangered Species Andy Warhol Color Screenprint on Lennox Museum Board 96.5w x 96.5h cm In 1983, Andy Warhol created a series of ten color screenprints that portrayed endangered animals from around the world: Siberian tiger, San Francisco silverspot, orangutan, Grevy’s zebra, black rhinoceros, bighorn ram, African elephant, pine barrens tree frog, giant panda and bald eagle. Using brilliant colors - characteristic of his signature style - and poignant expressions suggestive of the animal’s fate, Warhol creates a dynamic tension between art and reality. The idea for the portfolio emerged after conversations with Warhol about ecological issues that included a discussion about beach erosion.

Intended as part of a portfolio entitled TV that would depict important images from the history of television in America and include subjects such as I Love Lucy, Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, and the Beatles’ first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, Moonwalk was the only composition from the series that was printed.

By capturing ant-sized people in his photographs, he highlights the insignificance of man within the crippling vastness of the universe.
