Critical Review

Warhol produced two prints of Sachiko, both of which are rendered in a similar style. The artist superimposes multi-coloured squares over the woman’s portrait, dividing the composition into four unequal parts. In this print, pink, orange and turquoise blocks are laid over Sachiko’s image. Laid over a black and white portrait, these vibrant, contrasting colours accentuate Sachiko’s facial features and bring a playful feel to the print.

Warhol found fame, wealth and celebrity culture fascinating and would often socialise with celebrities, artists and art collectors. The Sachiko collection reflects how Warhol was inundated with requests from socialites, musicians and film stars for portraits in his characteristic Pop Art style. Celebrity commissions were an important aspect of Warhol’s artistic output and later in his career became his main source of profit.
