Meaning & Analysis

The Lenin series was the last that Warhol completed before his death in February 1987. Although depicting a much more serious subject than Marilyn Monroe or Ingrid Bergman, Andy Warhol’s Lenin exhibits the same interest in “celebrity” and the mass-produced image as his earlier series. Warhol highlights Lenin’s iconic features, his pointed beard and bald head, in striking primary colors. As in his images of the Electric Chair or Chairman Mao, Warhol does not seem to be making a political statement. The revolutionary is almost removed from his political context here, becoming just another recognizable image continuously reproduced.
