Reigning Queens: Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, 1985 (light outline)
Andy Warhol explored the themes of fame and celebrity throughout his life. In the 1960’s he created paintings and prints of many celebrities such as Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, and Elvis Presley. Later in the 1970’s and 80’s he was commissioned by hundreds of the rich and famous to create their portraits. Warhol’s practice of creating commissioned portraits allowed him another opportunity to document the world around him and acts as a lasting record of the European and American culture of that time.
