This is a print of Sitting Bull by Andy Warhol, one of our stunning collection of Andy Warhol quality wall art prints in Australia. Warhol interspersed recognisable portraits of well-known American heroes such asJohn Wayne, Annie Oakley, Teddy Roosevelt, and General George Custer, with less familiar Native American images and motifs in his ironic commentary on Americans’ collective mythologising of the historic Wild West.
Rather than portraying Native Americans within their historical landscape, or Cowboys in their veritable forms, Warhol chose to portray a popular, romanticized version of the American West.
The West that he chose to represent is familiar to everyone and can be seen in novels, films, TV series. Warhol’s Cowboys and Indians Suite is an ahistorical representation that mirrors a popular interpretation of the American West. Andy Warhol created the Cowboys and Indians series during the mid-1980s, arguably his most prolific period.
