Through the work’s haphazard and effortless composition of empty glasses, ash trays, cigarette butts and clutter, there is a key sense of disarray, a feeling of gluttony. This is in part due to the photographic quality of the work, the chaotic arrangement of the glasses and the vivid tints that outline the objects.

The Factory, Warhol’s famous studio, closed in 1987, so it was at the very height of the Factory’s lifetime in 1979, that Warhol printed and published his After the Party Series.
