Critical Review

The print is part of the Cologne Cathedral collection, a series of four prints, all of which depict the famous cathedral. While the prints all capture the cathedral from the same front-on angle, they vary in colour and level of detail. In this print, Warhol uses a variety of bright and vibrant crayon-like lines to delineate the building and its Gothic architecture. The pink, yellow and red lines are set against a bright turquoise backdrop. Cologne Cathedral is the most dynamic print of the collection in terms of colour used and contrasts markedly with Cologne Cathedral (F. & S. II.364) in which Warhol uses a restricted palette of grey tones.

Warhol simplifies the details of the cathedral through the screen printing process and in doing so draws attention to the form of the building and its general beauty.
