[ A black-and-white half length photograph of a nun dressed in full habit and holding a slice of cake on a plate. The nun is wearing a striped party hat and grinning at the camera with a fork raised as though about to take a bite of cake. The nun appears to be photographed in a room with some nondescript items in the background: a chair, a table with some decor, and a painting on the wall. ]

Object Label:
Andy Warhol (1928–1987, American) pioneered the development of the screenprinting process by enlarging and transferring photographic images onto paper and canvas. The technique enabled the artist to create his iconic works that integrated mass-media images of Campbell’s Soup cans and faces of politicians and celebrities—many of whom he photographed himself. The screenprints of Queen Ntombi Twala and the actress Ingrid Bergman exemplify his bold, close-up portraits that are particularly representative of Warhol’s fixation with powerful and famous women.
