“The idea is not to live forever; it is to create something that will.” —Andy Warhol
Since the dawn of humankind, few artworks have truly ascended to level of Masterpiece, an untouchable image that transcends time and place, a visual icon that looms larger than both artist and its moment of creation. Through Andy Warhol, Marilyn is both the epitome of the American Dream and a universally recognized image burned into the collective conscience — the modern Mona Lisa. Central to the artist’s pantheon of pop icons, ‘Shot Sage Blue Marilyn’ immortalizes Monroe as the embodiment of celebrity, while cementing her image into the art historical canon.
‘Shot Sage Blue Marilyn’ has taken over Rockefeller Plaza. Can you spot her?
To be offered in The Collection of Thomas and Doris Ammann Evening Sale on 9 May.
