Sitting Bull A70 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, Sitting Bull is based on an archival photo of the Sioux Chief. Sitting Bulls stands out against the stark off-white background with a light blue face that gives off the impression of complacency. He is dressed in a bold orange shirt with a red and yellow feather on his head. Warhol outlined Sitting Bull in vibrant yellow, highlighting the shape of braids and drawing the viewer’s eye to the subject. Originally conceived as part of the portfolio Cowboys and Indians, the first portfolio to combine images of people and objects, Andy Warhol decided not to include Sitting Bull and instead replaced him with another subject. This print is unique and comes framed to museum standards.
