Critical Review

The print can be seen alongside Warhol’s collection of screen prints, Sex Parts, which the artist produced in 1978. In this collection, Warhol produces graphic images in black and white of the male genitalia in a sketch-like style.

Warhol was known for producing controversial pieces of art and Fellatio is one of Warhol’s more explicit pieces that captures the artist's desire to explore taboo subjects in his artworks. In 1964, Warhol directed and produced a silent film called Blow Job in which he filmed DeVeren Bookwalter receiving a blow job. Shown at 24 frames per second, Warhol demanded that it be projected at 16 frames per second which slowed the film down by a third and drew attention to the sexual act being caught on camera. The short film differs from this print as it only captures Bookwalter’s facial expression and does not show the second person involved in the act.
