Critical Review

Saint Apollonia is rendered in a variety of cool blue tones and she is set against an earthy backdrop. Warhol uses thick blue lines to delineate the woman, a characteristic element of the artist’s visual style. Saint Apollonia (F. & S. II.332) is one of four prints in the Saint Apollonia collection, all of which depict the saint in the same pose, inspired by Francesca’s impressive painting.

Although Warhol uses a variety of bright and bold colours throughout the Saint Apollonia collection, the colours are more muted in comparison with his other artworks, such as his portraits of Marilyn Monroe. Warhol often transforms images by applying colour in broad strokes and misaligning layers to contort the image. In this collection, however, the original image remains recognisable. Warhol’s honours Francesca’s original paintings, and even preserves the cracks from the original which brings an interesting texture to these prints.
