Lot Essay

John Wayne is frequently annotated 'UNIQUE' (as in the present lot) due to a complication with copyright law that Warhol encountered after using the legendary Western film star's image. The prints had already been produced and numbered (and a few sets sold), so in order to sell the remainder of the edition, the numbering was erased and replaced with this annotation. Each remaining impression was also rescreened to be slightly different than the others.


Including: John Wayne; Annie Oakley; General Custer; Northwest Coast Mask; Kachina Dolls; Plains Indian Shield; Mother and Child; Geronimo; Indian Head Nickel; and Teddy Roosevelt
