Critical Review

The Shadow (unique) is part of Warhol’s popular collection of screen prints, the Myths collection. Formed of ten screen prints, each print is dedicated to an icon or idol from American popular culture. In The Shadow (unique), Warhol renders himself as The Shadow, the protagonist of the 1930s radio show of the same name.

The Myths collection demonstrates how Warhol used his art to elevate mass media imagery into the realm of fine art. Warhol often took artistic inspiration from popular culture, notably exemplified in this collection and the way in which the artist made prints of everyday consumer goods like Campbell’s soup cans and Brillo Boxes.
