As David Rodgers said, “Warhol, the epitome of cool, took artistic impersonality to extremes, choosing banal subjects, including popular icons, and executing them mechanistically.” This Plains Indian Shield is truly unique, artistically revolutionary and cool. It’s a truly wonderful exception to his normal utilization of advertising techniques and image appropriation of products, films, and celebrities. Plain Indian Shield is one of ten remarkable screenprints from Warhol’s 1986 “Cowboys and Indians” series.
Other notable images in this portfolio are "Teddy (Roosevelt)" and "Kachina Dolls."
