Andy Warhol created Grevy’s Zebra 300 for his portfolio Endangered Species in 1983. His friends and celebrated political activists Ron and Freyda Feldman approached Warhol to create a portfolio of ten endangered animals to raise public awareness. In addition to Grevys Zebra, the Endangered Species includes the African Elephant, the Pine Barrens Tree Frog, the Bald Eagle, the Giant Panda, the Siberian Tiger, the San Francisco Silverspot, the Orangutan, Grevy’s Zebra, the Black Rhinoceros and the Bighorn Ram. As exhibited by Grevy’s Zebra, Warhol depicted his Endangered Species using bold, bright colors. Warhol depicted the Zebra in vibrant shades of orange, set against a teal background with minimal details that emphasizes the subject and true to Warhol’s signature pop art style.
