Meaning & Analysis

Using a photograph of the dancer, Warhol produced a portrait of Kain in which vibrant blocks of colour are layered over and behind the dancer’s portrait. The way in which Warhol superimposes blocks of colour over the composition gives the artwork a collage-like feel. The photograph which Warhol used for this print was a Polaroid he took in his infamous New York studio, The Factory. Warhol often produced portraits of iconic stars and notable figures based off polaroids he took of them.

Bright yellows, oranges, pinks and blues dominate the composition which contrast with Kain’s red hair, lips and eyes. Warhol uses black gestural lines to delineate the woman’s facial features and emphasise her full lips and long eyelashes.
