Jackie - Andy Warhol

Today time for some more famous work of Andy Warhol.
The series portraits of "Jackie" (Jackie Kennedy) from 1966 and an impression with the famous "Flowers" from 1964.

Warhol used modern printing techniques, Offset and Screen Printing, for these works of art.
This has made it possible that so many museums have a copy of his famous works in their collection.
This was also part of the philosophy of Andy Warhol who called his studio "The Factory". There was a real production line of paintings in the Factory. This studio was a meeting place for artists, gays, transvestites, junkies and photo models. Everyone with any artistic pretension was welcome.
The Andy Warhol museum has a studio called The Factory in the basement, where you are invited to explore Andy Warhol's signature art-making techniques.

Photos 1 and 2 show two possibilities how to photograph a long row of portraits in a relatively small room.
Photo 1 shows the traditional way of photographing from the side.
Photo 2 is more experimental. Here I used the Panorama option of my camera. This gives a strong perspective distortion due to the short distance to the artwork. But still a fascinating picture.
Photo 3 shows "The Flowers" with in the foreground a young couple who apparently read more information about these flowers on their smartphone.
