BMA- Andy Warhol Self- Portrait

Going to the art museum last week was a very fun activity in place of class. One piece of artwork that I thought was very interesting was "Self-Portrait" by Andy Warhol. It is a synthetic polymer paint and silkscreen ink on canvas. It was in the modern art section on the museum and was a huge display. It's black backdrop with pink marks almost looked smudged and chalked on. To me it also looked like he was wearing some type of head dress on or feathers. The portrait is perceived to be of Andy Warhol himself, but an "elusive" portrait because viewers can exactly tell details of him. Warhol made many self-portraits throughout his career, however this one is subject to the real or true representation of him and is a more aged version.
