After painting my very first large scale painting Kiss earlier this year I'm happy to present my second large scale painting of a woman enjoying a painting of Marilyn Monroe by Andy Warhol.

In the following months after the death of Marilyn Monroe, Warhol made more than twenty silkscreen paintings of her, all based on the same publicity photograph from the 1953 film Niagara. By repeating the image, he evokes her ubiquitous presence in the media. 'The more you look at the same exact thing, the more the meaning goes away, and the better and emptier you feel,' Warhol has been reported to have said.

kind regards, Gerard
