Critical Review

Warhol created this portrait as a part of the larger series Muhammad Ali. In 1977 Richard Weisman commissioned the artist to create a series of portraits of athletes including Ali, Pelé, and Dorothy Hamill. Warhol was initially disinterested in sports, but came to see athletes as surpassing movie stars as the most recognizable celebrities in America. Despite his obscured face, the recognizability of Ali plays into Warhol’s obsession with fame. This interest in celebrity remains a common throughout Warhol’s work from his early portraits of Marilyn Monroe to this Muhammad Ali series in the late 70s.
