Artist's description:

The woman on my painting is enjoying a portrait of Elizabeth Taylor by Andy Warhol. This portrait reflects the artist’s fascination with female celebrity.

He first painted her portrait in 1963 when she was at the height of her career. Yet she was also severely ill with pneumonia. In this portrait Warhol used a publicity photograph for Taylor’s film ‘Butterfly 8’ as the basis for the screenprint. It is typical of his 1960s Pop style with vibrant, flat blocks of color.

It was pretty challenging to paint the portraits of Elizabeth Taylor like it's has been printed, but fun too. I especially love the contrast of the red jacket against all the greys and blacks of Warhol's piece.
