Andy Warhol Self-portrait 1986
I choose this portrait because it captured my eye and was very interesting. Andy Warhol created this piece about 1 year before his death. This portrait consists of 4 panels (4 silkscreen images of himself) with his trademark "shocked wig". This portrait is on a 6 foot square canvas. The images in this piece of art are slightly blured and out of register. Each panel is not straight or facing the same direction it makes your eyes move and look around. The colors he choice are this bright yellow and salmon with a harsh black backdrop behind the face. Overall i love this piece it is interesting, captures different looks of Andy Warhol.
