Andy Warhol created Mother and Child 383 in 1986 for his Cowboys and Indians portfolio. Warhol was fascinated by celebrity myths and the ways in which stories are represented by the media. This allure lead Warhol to create his Cowboys and Indians portfolio as a commentary about the myth of the American West. He used recognizable images like this one of Mother and Child that is representative the popular version of Native American culture. Warhol removed this native imagery from its original context and interspersed it with images of romanticized American heroes. Mother and Child is an example of Warhol’s fascination in the way media and society retell stories that misrepresent the history of the American west.
