Meaning & Analysis

Inspired by the first exhibition of the Mona Lisa in New York in 1963, and the subsequent media chaos that followed this, Warhol created his own version of the iconic portrait that same year. Warhol repeated the Mona Lisa’s face 30 times and titled it Thirty Are Better Than One. Reconsidering the concept with this print in 1984, Warhol used another iconic da Vinci painting to a similar effect, using cynical humour to play with the concept of mass produced objects that are reviled for their lack of originality.

Using his acclaimed screen print method, Warhol reduces the original da Vinci painting into a two-tone composition in dark teal and white. The stark contrasts and grainy quality are reminiscent of newspaper images and the tight crop of the image created an abstracted Pop Art version of the original masterpiece.
