Critical Review

This print is an example of Warhol’s creative take on the traditional still life genre. The subject of the print as well as the arrangement of the glasses resonates with a still life painting, however the way Warhol uses colour in the print sets this piece apart from other still life works. Warhol renders the champagne glasses in bright yellow, blue and turquoise. The artist’s use of gestural lines, a characteristic element of his visual language, brings a sense of dynamism to the print. The red, pink and yellow lines which delineate the glasses imply motion and capture the lively atmosphere of the party.

Warhol’s emphasis on geometric shapes and repetitive demarcations seen in this print are trademark features of the artist’s style.The blocks of colour used in Committee deviate from the conventions of the still life genre which strives to recreate a scene in as realistic a way as possible.
