In Joseph Beuys State III (F. & S. II.244), Andy Warhol depicts the German performance artist Joseph Beuys in lemon yellow printed on a blue background. The signed screen print originates with a single polaroid photograph taken by Warhol when the two met for the first time in 1979. Beuys’ yellow eyes and hat dominate the composition in this brightly colored image from the series Joseph Beuys. However, Warhol’s limited use of contrast makes Beuys less recognizable.
The postwar artist Joseph Beuys (1921-1986) began his career as a sculptor before moving into performance art and happenings. He was particularly known for his interest in shamanism and spirituality. While these interests diverge from Warhol’s fascination with consumerism and celebrity, both artists recognized the importance of fashioning one’s own image. While they only met a handful of times, the two artists admired and respected each other’s work. Warhol’s Joseph Beuys series is a testament to the longstanding mutual respect between the two post-war artists.
