Critical Review

The print was made towards the end of Warhol’s artistic career and the artist died three years after producing this print. Viewpoint marks a significant turn in the artist’s visual style and his experimentation with patterns of colour blocking. In many of Warhol’s later works, the artist produced prints in which blocks of colour are applied uniformly or diagonally over a drawn image, as is seen in Viewpoint and other prints such as Jean Cocteau (1985).

Viewpoint differs in subject matter to many of Warhol’s earlier prints which explore themes of celebrity culture, fame and consumerism. Warhol is arguably best known for his portraits of American stars like Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley, as well as his commercial illustrations of consumer goods like high heel shoes, items of jewellery and handbags.
