Sometimes I hate that I exist in a planet were people argue for their own sake, spread false information & mislead. But then .. Pancakes.

Andy Warhol, Marilyn Monroe, 1962
Part of a series on Monroe, made after she committed suicide. Warhol used the photograph from a 1953 publicity photo for the movie Niagara. This series, which seems pretty bright and happy, actually has a fucking depressing underlying meaning. By taking a well-known image and “mass-producing” it, Warhol essentially undermines the uniqueness and authentic feel of traditional portraiture. Marilyn is no longer one of a kind, but infinitely copiable. 
He also plays with how color affect mood in this piece.
