Published on the occasion of the exhibition Andy Warhol: Self Portraits (Fright Wigs), this catalogue features full plate images, details, and installation shots of Andy Warhol’s monumental Self Portraits of 1986. The catalogue also features an essay Shades of Warhol discussing the iconic series.
The Self Portrait (Fright Wig) paintings represents a culmination of themes present in Warhol’s oeuvre. Throughout his career, Warhol painted portraits of celebrities, politicians and socialites that he considered the icons of contemporary life. Here he places himself in that same category, elevating his own status and the status of the artist. Further, Warhol employs his mechanical approach to art making by using his perfected silk-screen technique to create a serialized image.
