Critical Review

Warhol produced multiple editions from a single polaroid which make up his Joseph Beuys series. This particular image reads more like a portrait than the majority of the series. Joseph Beuys (1921-1986) emerged post-war as a sculptor before branching into performance art, theory, activism, and teaching. He held particular interest in shamanism and often incorporated shamanist rituals into his happenings and performance art. While this diverges from Warhol’s interest in fame and consumerism, the two artists held mutual respect. Sir Normal Rosenthal noted, Beuys was “the greatest European artist of his time,” making his depiction by the American icon Andy Warhol all the more exciting.
