Birth of Venus (after Botticelli).

Name: Birth of Venus (after Botticelli).
Artist: Andy Warhol
Location: Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, USA
Year: 1984

In July of 1968, Warhol was shot two to three times by a woman named Valerie Solanis. He was seriously wounded and only narrowly escaped death. Warhol never recovered completely from his wounds and had to wear a bandage around his waist for the rest of his life. After this assassination attempt, the artist made a radical turn in his process of producing art. The philosopher of art mass production now spent most of his time making individual portraits of the rich and affluent of his time like Mick Jagger, Michael Jackson or Brigitte Bardot. Warhol said: "Making money is art, and working is art and good business is the best art."
