eBay Andy Warhol Electric Chair, 1971 Electric Chair (F&S II. 82), 1971 Color Screenprint on paper 35 1/2 x 48 inches Edition of 250 Signed "Andy Warhol" by the Artist in ball-point pen and Numbered with a rubber stamp on verso Printed by Silkprint Kettner, Zurich, Switzerland Publisher Bruno Bischofberger, Zurich, Switzerland LiteratureFrayda Feldman and Jorg Schellmann, Andy Warhol Prints: A Catalogue Raisonne: 1962-1987, Fourth Edition, D.A.P., New York, 2003, Catalogue Reference F&S II. 82, another impression reproduced page 79 in color.   The bright vibrant print is one out of a suite of 10 screen-prints of the same subject matter which Warhol created in 1971. Andy Warhol was not specific about his intent when he created the electric chair images. Upon the images of this deadly device Warhol imposed vivid colors, including bright oranges, yellows, and pinks. The actual object Warhol used as source material was a photograph of the electric chair in New York’s Sing Sing prison, which put to death Julius and Ethel Rosenberg on June 19, 1953. The chair becomes an iconic image in terms of punishment. The arguments for and against the Rosenbergs and the death penalty were prominent news stories during Warhol’s most creative period as an artist. No definitive answer exists, however, as to whether or not his works are gestures of protest.  While the images themselves are incredibly provocative and very culturally laden, they can’t be pinned down to a particular position. Some people say Warhol had a flip, non-political attitude, yet nevertheless here he was doing electric chair paintings, race riot paintings, and other work with both violent and difficult subject matter. Was there a socio-critical intent or was he just holding up a mirror to all aspects of American society – from Coca-Cola to capital punishment? That is the question. The nature of just holding up a mirror to reflect who we are can be a provocative and critical act. The work’s power is in its ambiguity or ability to generate diverse interpretations.   Artwork will be professionally packaged and shipped UPS or US Mail. No returns unless damaged in shipping process. Price of artwork is firm.
