The Star 258 is part of Andy Warhol’s 1981 Myths series, which depicts star Greta Garbo as Mata Hari. The image is based on a photograph of the actress in her role as the Dutch spy who was executed for her supposed involvement with the German army during the first World War.

The Star 258 is a part of 10 screenprints in the Myths series that exemplify Warhol’s unerring sense for the powerful motifs of his time. Most of images in Warhol’s Myths series are taken from 1950s television or old Hollywood films. They portray the universal view of America’s once captivating and commanding past. Other pieces included in the series are characters loved by children such as Mickey Mouse, Howdy Doody, and Santa Claus, as well as fictional figures like Dracula, The Wicked Witch of the West, and Uncle Sam.
