Warhol and his iconic Marilyn

Original color 19.75 x 29.75 promotional poster for an Andy Warhol exhibition held at London's Tate Gallery from February 17 to March 28, 1971, featuring an iconic image of the artist's silkscreened Marilyn Monroe, entitled 'Shot Sage Blue Marilyn,' signed along the bottom in black felt tip, “Andy Warhol, London, 1971.” Printed by the Hillingdon Press. Framed and in very good to fine condition, with small holes to the upper left blank area.

The month of Monroe's tragic death, Warhol, who had only just begun experimenting with the silkscreen process, decided to pay tribute to the late screen legend with a series of multicolored paintings. The basis of this image, and those that represent Warhol's iconic 'Marilyn Diptych," derives from a publicity shot by Gene Korman for the 1953 film Niagara. A gorgeous vintage poster in its own right, this magnificent presentation piece finds Warhol signing one of his most identifiable and desirable subjects—the original silkscreen painting of 'Shot Sage Blue Marilyn' recently sold at auction for a record $195,000,000.
