Critical Review

Warhol produced Lamentation, and the larger series, Martha Graham, in 1986 in commemoration of the foundation of the Martha Graham Dance Company in 1926. The artist and dancer were very fond of each other, and Warhol produced these three images to support her company. To create the series, Warhol adapted Barbara Morgan’s iconic photographs of Graham taken in 1940. This usage of the most recognizable images of a figure was typical of Warhol throughout his career. The artist similarly used well-known photos of Marilyn Monroe, Ingrid Bergman, and even Buzz Aldrin in his other screen prints.
