See the West in Warhol’s Iconic Style

What is it: During the final years of his career, Andy Warhol’s lifelong fascination with the American West and Native American art came to the forefront of his work in a series of screen prints and paintings called Cowboys and Indians. Featuring portraits of prominent figures such as Annie Oakley and Geronimo, this traveling exhibition will let you experience the West through Warhol’s eyes.

The 1986 Cowboys and Indians series was the last major group of work he created before his death. In addition to the more overt pop culture references in this series, such as the print of Western film actor John Wayne, Warhol drew more broadly on the American cultural fascination with the American West and Indigenous North America. Warhol grew up at a time when Westerns were popular in film and television, and when he created the series in the 1980s, the genre — and related ones such as Country and Western music — were seeing a revival in popular culture.

See this body of Warhol’s work while exploring themes of American nostalgia, exploitation, appropriation, and progress.

Warhol’s West was organized by the Booth Western Art Museum, Cartersville, GA, and the Cochran Collection, LaGrange, GA.
