Critical Review

The print can be seen alongside Warhol’s Ten Portraits of Jews collection. In this series of ten prints, Warhol depicts ten famous Jewish figures in his characteristic Pop Art style. In Golda Meir, Warhol depicts Meir from a side-on angle. Dark blue dominates the composition and this iteration of Meir’s portrait is simpler than the later version which involves a greater experimentation with lines and colour. Meir is set against a plain backdrop which contrasts with some of the other prints in the collection which are characterised by backgrounds composed of geometric shapes or layered colours.

Warhol was obsessed with fame and celebrity culture. The artist often depicted famous figures in his prints with notable examples being Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley. In this collection, however, Warhol moves away from the glamour and glitz of his conventional subjects, choosing instead to draw important figures who have made significant contributions to society.
