original painting of a woman enjoying painting of Marilyn Monroe by Andy Warhol
acrylic on panel (masonite)
71" x 41 1/4" or 180 x 120 cm
After painting my very first large scale painting Kiss earlier this year I'm happy to present my second large scale painting of a woman enjoying a painting of Marilyn Monroe by Andy Warhol.
In the following months after the death of Marilyn Monroe, Warhol made more than twenty silkscreen paintings of her, all based on the same publicity photograph from the 1953 film Niagara. By repeating the image, he evokes her ubiquitous presence in the media. 'The more you look at the same exact thing, the more the meaning goes away, and the better and emptier you feel,' Warhol has been reported to have said.
I created Marilyn Monroe with the finest quality of acrylic on gessoed panel. The style, tonality and use of color are easy to recognize as mine and very typical for my work. The painting is signed at the back and front. Included on the back are also all the names of the people who made this painting possible. Kiss comes with a hand signed certificate of authenticity.
An installment plan to spread payments over a convenient length of time is possible. Please feel free to contact me for more details if you happen to be interested in such an arrangement.
Shipping takes about three weeks no matter where you live in the world. You'll receive your painting safely packaged in a wooden crate. Marilyn Monroe is ready to be installed immediately.
Please feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions. I would be happy to answer all of your inquiries personally and send you any additional images you might need. Thank you and I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
Kind regards, Gerard Boersma
