Critical Review

War Bonnet Indian (F. & S. II.373) is one of ten graphic screen prints that compose the Cowboys And Indians series. In this series, Warhol takes archetypal figures and objects that capture America’s romanticised vision of the American West. The distortion of the images through Warhol's playful use of colour reflects the distorted and contrived portrayal of the American West propagated through its depictions in popular culture, such as literature, film and television. Warhol's choice to depict a stereotypical image of a traditional Native American figure in his Pop Art style creates an ironic political commentary regarding the misconstrued impressions of the American West.

The print was made using Warhol's signature screen printing method which was developed to mass-produce imagery to be widely distributed. The technique therefore mirrors the way in which history has been distorted and propagated through popular culture.
