Printed in 1979, After The Party (F. & S. II.183) is a screen print by Andy Warhol that captures the aftermath of a seemingly wild and raucous party. A sense of gluttony and hedonism emerges from the haphazard arrangement of empty glasses, bottles and ashtrays that make up this print’s composition. The print is rendered in monochromatic black and white with vivid tints of red, yellow and blue outlining the various objects that are spread across the table.
This print on Arches 88 paper, along with the others in the After The Party series have the overall appearance of a series of exposure photographs. Each print from the series, however, has a unique colourful addition delineating the objects within the print’s composition, meaning no two prints are entirely alike. The loose, colourful outlines seem to allude to the hazy and disorientating effects of the alcohol and drugs that would have been consumed at one of these parties in the 1970s. While the chaotic array of colourful objects evokes a sense of prosperity and excess, the black and white backdrop hints to the dark side hiding behind the apparent glamour.
Warhol’s After The Party series was printed and published in 1979, a time in which his famous studio, The Factory, was at its peak, doubling as New York’s hottest and most exclusive party spot. This print alludes to the celebrity parties Warhol hosted at his studio which the artists admits to using in order to study the lives of the rich and famous.
