|Description: Hand signed. From the unsigned edition of 500 (there was also a signed edition of 200 on opaque acrylic), published by Lincoln Center/List poster and print program, New York. Artwork is in excellent condition. Certificate of Authenticity included. Published by Leo Castelli Gallery, for Vera List Art Program, Lincoln Center. This iconic limited edition silkscreen is Andy Warhol’s homage to an enduring cultural center of New York City. This work simultaneously reflects Warhol's central preoccupations with commercial culture (the ticket is, par excellence, an object that is bought and sold), as well as his fascination with the movies - as the Ticket, quite literally, represents an entree into the world of film. Lincoln Center Ticket is also Warhol's homage to fellow Pop provocateur, Claes Oldenburg, famous for appropriating everyday objects and re-imagining them on the grand scale - as Warhol was acutely aware of the works of his contemporaries. Warhol's appropriation of the flower in this work, an otherwise sentimental and decorative motif, by transforming it into a symbol of the Pop Art movement, is a hallmark of his early style and innovations.|
