Critical Review

While following his decades-long tradition of creating screen prints of celebrities, this particular series was produced late in Andy Warhol’s career, just a year before his death. Like his Ingrid Bergman, The Nun (F. & S. II.314), this image has been taken from a film still. Bergman famously played Ilsa Lund alongside Humphrey Bogart in the Academy Award winning film, Casablanca (1942).

The series reflects Warhol’s obsession with celebrity and fame. Here, Bergman occupies a dual role, playing both her iconic character Ilsa Lund and herself as a celebrity. This blurring of identity is central to Warhol’s work. The impact of Warhol’s mass-production of celebrity-figures can still be seen in our fame-oriented culture of today.
