Although Warhol was unhappy with his appearance throughout his life, self-portraiture was a recurring theme in his oeuvre. Role-playing was a central aspect of many of his self-portraits and his Polaroid camera was an effective means of quickly documenting his changing personae. In this work Warhol faces the camera wearing a blue t-shirt, with a text that reads ‘Andy Warhol’s’ but is cut off the following line by the composition of the image. His eyes are cast in a slightly downwards stare which draws the viewer's attention to the text, encouraging the consideration as to what is "Andy Warhol’s"?
