Critical Review

Warhol created Moonwalk 405 as a part of his larger series of the same name. The Moonwalk series depicts the Apollo 11 mission of 1969. This moment, mans’ first steps on the moon, was a major element of the zeitgeist of the twentieth century in the United States. However, Warhol’s rendition comes nearly two decades after the event, as a reflection of its impact. Even half a century later, the image is immediately recognizable as both historic and distinctly Warhol. As the series was completed only a few months before the artist's death, it is highly sought after.
