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.
