Critical Review

Cats Named Sam IV 59 is one of 16 lithograph prints in the Cats Named Sam series, produced by Warhol in 1954 to accompany the children's book he published, 25 Cats Name (sic) Sam and One Blue Pussy. The inspiration for this series came from Warhol's mother, Julia, who moved in with the artist in 1952 and accumulated 25 pet cats. This series is more personal than Warhol's other series, such as Campbell's Soup or Brillo Box which were inspired by highly impersonal, global consumer culture.
