Critical Review

The print was made to be the cover art for Lennon’s second solo album, Menlo Ave. Yoko Ono, Lennon’s wife and Warhol’s close friend, asked Warhol to produce this design. Yoko Ono herself was a famous Japanese-American artist and Warhol spent a lot of time partying with her and Lennon in New York. The album was released just a few months before Lennon’s shocking death.

Warhol produced a large number of portraits of notable figures ranging from stars of popular culture like John Lennon, Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe to political figures like Mao Zedong, Vladimir Lenin and Richard Nixon. Warhol’s portraits capture the artist’s fascination with celebrity status and stardom and his interest in the way in which people can be memorialised through art.
