Critical Review

The print can be seen alongside three other screen prints that are part of the Cologne Cathedral collection, all of which depict the cathedral. By rendering the cathedral in such bright and vibrant colours and using crayon-like lines to obscure the details of the original image, Warhol produces an original artistic rendition of the cathedral. The lack of detail is also a way for the artist to draw attention to the form of the cathedral and focus on the general beauty of the religious building.

Rendering the cathedral in his Pop Art style, Warhol transports the building which carries tremendous historical and religious heritage into the realm of the popular. The cathedral is made into a Pop Art icon like Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans and Diamond Dust Shoes.
