Critical Review

The print is part of Warhol’s renowned collection from 1980, Ten Portraits of Jews. In this collection, Warhol depicts ten famous Jews from the 20th century. The subjects of the portraits were chosen due to the impressive things they accomplished in their lifetimes and the worldwide fame they achieved. Each sitter belonged to a different field and Warhol nicknamed the subjects ‘Jewish geniuses’ due to the mark they left on society.

Warhol had a long-standing fascination with fame and produced prints of celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley. The subjects of these prints, however, transcend the realm of surface level fame and glamour. Rendering Einstein in his characteristic Pop Art style, Warhol playfully transforms the respected scientist into a 1980s Pop Art icon.
