New York City, NY
The “Endangered Species” portfolio of silkscreened prints was commissioned by the art dealers Ronald and Frayda Feldman. The idea for the portfolio was born after conversations they had with Warhol about ecological issues, including beach erosion. [....]
While Warhol is best known for his Pop art and films, his interest in nature was life-long. As a child he drew animals in science class at Holmes School, kept a flower garden in the family’s yard, and drew in Schenley Park and Phipps Conservatory. In college, he went to the zoo in Highland Park to draw. Later in his life Warhol created his Cow and Fish Wallpaper, the film Sunset, and hundreds of paintings, prints, and drawings of flowers.
