Andy Warhol: Marilyn Monroe (Marilyn) Portfolio Announcement Card

This announcement card was published as a prospectus for Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe (Marilyn) portfolio by Factory Additions in 1967. It reproduces, in vivid color, a version of Warhol’s iconic Marilyn Monroe, which was based on a cropped publicity still from the film Niagara (1953) and remains one of the most famous images ever produced. Warhol used Monroe’s likeness several times, beginning with Gold Marilyn Monroe (1962).

The portfolio is the first set of silkscreen prints produced and published by the company that Warhol established in the same year. Each entry in the group of ten was printed using five screens: one that carried the photographic image and four that demarcated different areas of color, sometimes printed off-register to enhance the suggestion of industrial production.
