Big Electric Chair.

Name: Big Electric Chair.
Artist: Andy Warhol
Location: Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, USA
Year: 1967

The Electric Chair screen prints belong to the series known as 'American Death'. They are an example of the period in Andy Warhol's work when disasters in the USA - suicides, car accidents, murders attracted his interest. It is difficult to say whether this was an expression of his protest, a mere pose or a phenomenon he just took a fancy to. There is now question that these disturbing images carry considerable visual power. "They say that time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself." (Andy Warhol)
