Critical Review

In this print, Warhol renders Carter in his signature Pop Art style, characterised by his use of bright and vibrant colours, bold gestural lines and a loose application of layered colours. Carter is captured smiling at the viewer of the print and resting his chin on his hand. The pose and Carter’s wide grin is meant to make the politician look approachable and trustworthy.

Carter’s electoral campaign team approached Warhol to produce these portraits as the artist was extremely popular amongst young people in New York. The Democrats hoped that Warhol’s stardom and status as an icon of popular culture would attract younger voters in New York who were crucial to the campaign’s success. Having Warhol participate in the campaign was also a way for Carter to position himself as the progressive candidate in the Presidential race.
