In 1983, Andy Warhol’s friend and colleague, Bruno Bischofberg, a gallerist in Zurich, asked Warhol to create a series of works for children. Warhol, who was fond of children, had been collecting vintage toys and children’s books, which inspired him to create the ‘Toy Paintings’. Through a combination of silkscreening and painting, Warhol created the colorful works that constituted the collection. He also designed a fish wallpaper himself, to serve as a backdrop for the lowly hung colorful works that children could easily see and resonate with.
