Marilyn Monroe is one of the most iconic Hollywood actresses and models of 1950’s / 60’s pop culture. Shortly after her death in August of 1962, Warhol cropped a publicity still of the actress, blowing her image up and using it to create his silkscreens. Mr. Brainwash samples this great American Pop Art reference and introducing a new element of Contemporary Art to the ongoing art historical lineage of this great American Icon.
