Andy Warhol Race Riot: Warhol's first Screenprint
Andy Warhol appropriated a May 12, 1963 Life Magazine photograph from the Alabama Civil Rights riot to create the Race Riot Screenprint, his first limited edition screenprint.
Andy Warhol Race Riot was created in collaboration with Norman Ives and Sewell Sillman, two well-known printmakers. For Andy Warhol, creating Birmingham Race Riot was a forerunner to eventually creating hundreds of screenprint editions, something Warhol continued to do right up until his untimely death in 1987.
Joseph K. Levene Fine Art, Ltd. has a museum quality impression of the Andy Warhol Birmingham Race Riot screenprint; the impression is pristine meaning it has never been hinged, framed or matted is available with the original publisher's sleeve from the X + X (Ten Works by Ten Painters) Portfolio.
