Label TextAndy Warhol embraced mass culture, the media, and celebrity as subject matter. His pioneering technique, which derived from silkscreen printing, challenged the distinction between commercial images and fine art. From the mid-1960s forward, portraiture was one of Warhol’s central themes. Perhaps in a nod to religious icons crafted of precious metals, Warhol extended the color field beyond the boundaries of Parton’s features, elevating her status to that of an idol.
