Critical Review

Siberian Tiger (F. & S. II.297) is part of the Endangered Species series, composed of 10 prints, each depicting a different endangered species. The series was commissioned in 1983 by New York gallerists and environmental activists, Ronald and Frayda Feldman. The series reflects Warhol’s personal interest in animals and nature. In fact, in 1986, Warhol went on to collaborate with Kurt Benirschke on Vanishing Animals, a book that combined art and science as a means of drawing attention towards lesser-known endangered animals.

The print was made using Warhol’s signature screen printing technique which enables him to experiment with colour and layering. By depicting the Siberian Tiger in such bold colours, Warhol draws attention towards the splendour of this endangered animal. The print acts as a warning of the need to protect this wonderful creature, along with others that are threatened by the disastrous consequences of climate change, pollution and deforestation.
