Critical Review

Warhol demonstrates his trademark colour block method of screen printing to create a vibrant and flattened representation of the original photograph used for the print. The contrasting hues of blue, yellow, pink, green and orange produce a playful and celebratory depiction of the bridge that is distinctly Warholian.

Unlike much of Warhol’s other work, for this piece the artist uses an offset printing technique that shows a more complex offsetting of the subject. This is reflected in the way that the bridge has been mirrored and projects off into the distance of the picture plane, blurring the lines between reality and representation. Through bold use of colour and composition, the seemingly mundane photograph of the Brooklyn Bridge that has been depicted by a multitude of American artists has been abstracted and transformed into an iconic Pop Art piece.
