Green Marilyn - 1962 - Andy Warhol

I have selected this piece of art by Andy Warhol titled "Green Marilyn" There are many variations of this picture as there are so many different varieties of colors. Andy Warhol is known worldwide for his pop art, and this is a prime example. This painting relates directly to our class based on color. Many of his paintings, especially this particular one, demonstrates his use in using the CMYK colorwheel rather than the RYB color wheel. I believe it displays almost every single color from the CMYK color wheel, which I find interesting because they are bright and bold rather than the normal primary colors you usually see in artwork!
