This is a photo of Andy Wahrol‘s famous set of silkscreen paintings of Marilyn Munroe’s portrait in highly contrasting colors, that I clicked at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, at Humlebaek, Copenhagen. Wahrol did the first rendition, called the Marilyn Diptych, soon after Munroe’s death in 1962.
Ever since this piece of art and its reproductions have adorned anything from museums and art galleries to tee-shirts and coffee mugs. But on the brighter side, it has also inspired a whole generation of pop-artists.
