Lenin Trial Print 402

Lenin Trial Print 402 was Andy Warhol’s portrait of Vladimir Lenin, the political leader of Russia. Lenin was the father of Russia’s communist revolution. Lenin is primarily blue and less defined to emphasize Lenin’s famous face and hand in orange. His body blends in with the blue background, allowing his face and hand to stand out. With this print, Warhol is able to emphasize the intelligence and power of the political leader.

Lenin Trial Print 402 by Andy Warhol as Part of a Larger Body of Work

Warhol demonstrates the diversity of his subject matters as he reaches out beyond the realm of Hollywood celebrities, socialites, rock stars and wildly popular household items and explores a more daring subject — politics. By doing so, we are confronted with an ambiguously conflicting thought: Did Warhol choose a political figure as his focus to bring depth to his portfolio of motifs, or did he take the depth out of politics by choosing this subject matter to exist next to the ubiquitous images of soup cans, dollar signs and flowers?
