Critical Review

In this print, Warhol renders Gershwin in his classical Pop Art style, characterised by the use of bold colours, hand-drawn lines and layering. Gershwin is depicted from side-on, looking towards the right of the composition. The portrait is divided into quarters with each one being dominated by a different bright colour.

George Gershwin (F. & S. II.231) can be seen along with ten other prints that are part of the Ten Portraits of Jews collection. For this collection, Warhol chose ten notable figures, all Jewish, who he produced portraits of in his signature graphic style. Warhol was fascinated by celebrities and fame, however the people he depicts in this series transcend the surface level fame and glamour of many of Warhol’s traditional subjects.
