Love (F. & S. II.311) is one of three prints that makes up Andy Warhol’s Love series from 1983, depicting a nude couple in various poses of embrace. This print shows the couple facing one another as if about to kiss, each with one hand on their partner and one hand on their own hips. Rendered as a simple line drawing against a plain white backdrop and bright contours of colour, this print marks a departure from Warhol’s typical style.
Warhol’sLove series is a narrative celebration of love, desire and eroticism that uses vibrant misaligned colour and organic line drawings to create an aura of attraction and fantasy. In Love (F. & S. II.311) the figures glow and pulsate in yellow and magenta ink, confronting the viewer with an image that is both explicit and elusive in its romantic portrayal of sexual attraction.
Love (F. & S. II.311) is recognisable as a 1980s piece of Pop Art in its highly stylised reduction of form and haze of neon colours. The print also harks back to Warhol’s origins as a fashion illustrator, seen in his elegant use of line and the figures echoing catwalk sketches or fashion advertisements.
