Online caption

During the 1950s, alongside his commercial illustrations, Warhol began to experiment with different techniques and modes of expression. His work from this period includes gold leaf, marbled paper and rubber-stamps. In this study he has combined areas of paint with abstract stencilled shapes created with black spray-paint.
