Sitting Bull IIIA 70 by Andy Warhol
Title: Sitting Bull IIIA 70
Medium: Screenprint on Lenox Museum Board.
Size: 36” x 36″
Andy Warhol’s Sitting Bull is a unique screenprint associated with his Cowboys and Indians portfolio. Created in the 1980s, arguably Andy’s most prolific decade, Sitting Bull is based on an archival photo of the Sioux Chief. Warhol uses minimal colors, allowing the vibrant red and yellow outlines to draw the eye to the subject, the hero of the Battle of Little Big Horn. Originally conceived as part of the portfolio Cowboys and Indians, the first portfolio to combine images of people and objects, Warhol decided not to include Sitting Bull and instead replaced with another subject. This particular print is trial proof edition, meaning it is a unique color combination.
