The Art of Giving 1981

Not on display

  • Artist Rooms
This poster shows Warhol standing in front of one of his ‘Myth’ series of prints, produced in 1981. The series is based on characters from American popular culture which have become icons, defining different generations. As the print featured here is that of Father Christmas (the rest of the prints from the portfolio are visible along the bottom), it can be presumed that this was a Christmas promotion for the department store ‘Weinstock’s’. Perhaps Warhol lent a series of the works to be shown in the store for the Christmas shoppers to enjoy.
