In "Marilyn Monroe," Andy Warhol (1923 - 1987) merged art with the culture of mass production by creating vivid turquoise, mint green, fuchsia and lemon yellow multiples of her image. During the four months following Marilyn Monroe's death, Pop Art founder Warhol made 20 silkscreened paintings of her based on a publicity photo from the film "Niagara." Fascinated by death and the cult of celebrity, Warhol generated brash, assembly-line paintings of Monroe symbolizing the mortal behind the myth, and her widespread presence in the media. Andy Warhol's pioneering Pop Art defined a decade and a culture, distinguishing him as one of the most influential, creative and prolific artists of the 20th century. Originally the most sought-after commercial artist in New York, Warhol (1928 - 1987) is most known for his multiple images of Campbell's Soup cans, Coke bottles, dollar bills and celebrities, which exalted the beauty within ordinary objects and familiar images. Working out of a studio called The Factory, he invented the silkscreening process which enabled him to mass produce a single image in his signature style. Warhol was also a talented filmmaker, music producer, commercial illustrator, author and magazine publisher.
