Marilyn (Reversal Series), 1979.

Starting just after Marilyn Monroe's passing in August 1962, Andy Warhol's Marilyn series encapsulated the promise, allure, enjoyment, celebrity, and sorrow that defined 1960s America. Yet, with the Marilyn (Reversal Series) created between 1979 and 1986, Warhol pivoted the focus from the famed subject to the renown of the artist himself. Drawing inspiration from a tradition where artists reinterpret the work of their forebears, Warhol revisited and reimagined his own acclaimed collection of images, refreshing his iconic Pop art motifs from the 1960s. In "Four Multicoloured Marilyns" (Reversal series), Warhol employs negative imaging to create an ethereal fading of his subject, shifting the original portraits' dynamic. No longer just homages to a film icon, these works serve as introspective commentary on Warhol's own legacy in the art world.
