Andy Warhol created Giant Panda 295 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 Giant Panda, 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 Giant Panda, Warhol stays true to his pop art style, depicting his Endangered Species using bold, bright colors with minimal background details in order to emphasize the subject. Giant Panda is in excellent condition and comes framed to museum standards.
