Chanel No. 5 Perfume Advertising Posters by Warhol

Here are some very beautiful Andy Warhol Art posters used by Chanel in 1997 on the streets of Paris. Andy Warhol created this design in the 1980's but, due to his unexpected early death, the images were not used until much later. The Chanel Art Print Posters measured approx 20" x 28" inches each. They are of the classic ladies perfume Chanel No. 5.

Jackies by Warhol go to Dallas for Auction

DALLAS -- As news photographs, the 1963 images of Jacqueline Kennedy as a grieving widow touched the nation, reflecting America's mourning after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

For pop artist Andy Warhol, the photos became the catalyst for his "Jackie" works, a series of paintings and screen prints created between 1963 and 1968 that captured the moments before and after the assassination as she was transformed from glamorous first lady to grieving widow.

Most of the succession of portraits created by Warhol are screened in black on funereal blue backgrounds, and most were created in Warhol's New York studio, The Factory, in the months after the assassination. Warhol was fascinated by the first lady, who like Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor seemed pursued by the shadow of death.

"Andy Warhol was the most brilliant chronicler of his time, everything touched him. While Warhol wanted to memorialize a horrific moment in history, he thought it would be distasteful to use news images of the president as he was killed, hence he embodied everything in the young widow,". said Tom Sokolowski, director of the Warhol Museum.

Heritage Auction Galleries Auction #5004 Includes Warhol Pop Art Suite of the widow Jacqueline Kennedy. Absentee bidding started April 10th 2008, and runs through May 7th 2008, The floor auction is being held in Dallas, TX on May 8*-9, 2008.

These portraits have captured one of the most traumatic events in postwar America and marks the development of instant news, mass emotion and mass reaction. Rather than a common voyeur, Warhol created a statement of American culture which is just as poignant today as it was in 1966.
