Andy Warhol created this lithograph portrait of Liz Taylor in 1964 based on a photograph for her film Butterfield 8. It was well known that Warhol was fascinated with fame and the private lives of celebrities. Liz Taylor was the picture of glamor and a fixture in the tabloids due to her multiple marriages and health issues. Warhol emphasizes her glamor by printing her portrait on a vibrant red background. She is made up with red lips, turquoise eye shadow, and winged eyeliner that emphasizes the star’s allure and make her look as if she is glowing. Liz is exemplary of Warhol’s pop art portraiture and obsession with celebrity. This particular edition has a special provenance. Warhol himself gifted it to famed art collector Marcia Weisman, and it later became part of the Fredrick R. Weisman Art Foundation.
