Critical Review

The series Reigning Queens features four queens regnant in 1985: Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, Queen Ntombi Twala of Swaziland, Queen Margarethe of Denmark, and Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands. Produced in the last years of his life, Warhol’s Reigning Queens draws on his lifelong interest in feminine beauty and fame as well as power. This series evokes his early work featuring famous stars likeMarilyn Monroe orIngrid Bergman as well as images of political figures likeChairman Mao orVladimir Lenin. The series treats official royal portraits as a celebrity headshots, equating political power with fame.
