Ingrid Bergman, Herself 313 as Part of Andy Warhol’s Larger Body of Work
After the success of the Campbell’s Soup series in the early 1960s, Warhol began creating screenprints of movie star portraits including Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, and Elizabeth Taylor. This print is indicative of Warhol’s obsession with all things relating to fame, especially movie stars. His fascination with pop culture spilled over into his creative output, which is evident by his prints of movie stars, Campbell Soup cans and political figures. His art is a visual recording of the culture of his time.
