Critical Review

The print can be seen alongside a collection of prints made by Warhol in 1986 commissioned by Mercedes-Benz. In the Cars collection, Warhol produced a number of artworks which tracked the evolution of the car designs from the Benz Patent-Motorwagen (1886) to the Mercedes-Benz C111 which was popular in the 1960s and 1970s. The first car painting produced by Warhol was made in 1986 and commissioned by German art dealer, Hans Meyer, to celebrate the centenary of the invention of the motor car.

Warhol’s depiction of cars captures how the artist often took artistic inspiration from everyday consumer goods. Warhol challenged what could be considered a worthy subject of fine art and broke down the boundaries separating ‘high’ and ‘low’ culture by elevating ordinary objects and subjects into the realm of fine art.
