Andy Warhol – Self-Portrait in Drag  1981

Photography was central to the work of Andy Warhol. Photographs dominated the mass-mediated American culture in which Warhol operated, and served as his image bank. While the artist most famously used found commercial photographs as source material for silkscreen paintings of celebrities, disasters, and other subjects, he also worked from his own images.
