The present work is a poster of Warhol’s exhibition from the Tate Gallery, which took place in London February 17 through March 28, 1971.

During the 1960s American Pop artist Andy Warhol (1928–1987) began to explore the iconic status of everyday objects such as his images of Campbell's Soup cans and portraits of notable personalities such as Marilyn Monroe. Warhol was an up-and-coming artist at the time, and had only created his famous Marilyn series, one of which is featured in this poster, three years prior to the exhibition. The series, arguably the artist's most famous and one that defined both the artist and the Pop Art movement as a whole, is represented in the quintessential Pop style.
