Andy Warhol created Electric Chair 81 for his Death and Disaster series. This print is unique in the portfolio because Warhol uses more than just two colors. The image of the electric chair and its surroundings is brought to life by the use of a dark brown. Over this simple color, Warhol haphazardly applies shades of red, yellow and orange and brush strokes are visible. As part of Warhol’s most controversial and thought provoking series, the Electric Chair portfolio opens up a dialog between the viewer and the work about how society has become numb to images of tragedy. The pop art nature of this series caused an uproar with critics because many thought Warhol was paying respect the subject matter he chose. Collectors enjoy this print due to the notoriety of the subject matter and the unique colors chosen by Pop Art King, Andy Warhol.
