    About the Artwork

    Warhol’s studio was always a hangout, particularly in the 1960’s and 70’s and was named The Factory. In the 60’s visitors to The Factory included New York socialites, entertainers, artists, writers, drug addicts, hangers-on…a whole array of people. In 1964, just as Warhol was completing a series of “Marilyn” canvases, Dorothy Podber (a speed freak and friend of Factory photographer, Billy Name) arrived at Warhol’s studio and upon seeing the freshly completed paintings asked Warhol if she could shoot them. Warhol, apparently not comprehending Podber’s meaning of the word “shoot” agreed, and Podber then pulled out a small revolver and fired a shot into a stack of “Marilyn” paintings. The surviving canvases were called the “Shot Marilyn” Paintings.

    You will see that in the print “Shot Blue Marilyn” a spot appears on Marilyn’s forehead. The spot appears on the print because it accurately reflects the actual canvas. We work closely with the Warhol Foundation on all our reproductions of Andy Warhol’s work and they felt that it was important not to re-touch the spot because of the history surrounding the “Shot Marilyn” paintings.
