Mouths were always a point of interest for Warhol: think the pops of color highlighting them in his famous silkscreens of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor or Chairman Mao. But it wasn’t until 1975 that he created a full series dedicated to the feature. He fashioned three unique albums comprised of more than 60 pairs of lips made from prints and collages of images silkscreened onto various types of tape.
Andy Warhol - Lips will be on display at the Danziger Gallery until February 25, 2017.
