In the dynamic realm of Pop Art, Andy Warhol's 1986 exhibition poster, "10 Statues of Liberty," stands as a testament to the artist's enduring fascination with iconic American symbols. Published by Galerie Lavignes-Bastille in Paris, this oversized vintage poster commemorates a landmark exhibition that showcased Warhol's reinterpretation of the Statue of Liberty. Beyond its promotional function, this poster captures a pivotal moment in Warhol's career, presenting a series that pays homage to Lady Liberty in a manner that only Warhol could.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition at Galerie Lavignes-Bastille from April 8 to May 30, 1986, the poster serves as a visual invitation to an exploration of Warhol's unique take on the Statue of Liberty. With fewer than 500 copies in circulation, this poster is a rare collector's item, made even more significant as it represents a lifetime edition for an exhibition personally attended by Warhol.

The "10 Statues of Liberty" series showcased in the exhibition is a distinctive chapter in Warhol's artistic repertoire. Departing from his earlier renditions, these large-scale Camouflage Statue of Liberty paintings focus on a close-up enlargement of the figure's head. As a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the statue's gift from France to America, Warhol's exploration of Lady Liberty in this series became a defining moment in his later career.

Warhol's fascination with the Statue of Liberty extends back to the 1960s, and the 1986 series is a notable reprisal of this enduring subject. The poster captures not only the visual impact of Warhol's reinterpretation but also the context of the exhibition. Warhol's presence at the debut of this body of work in Paris adds an extra layer of significance to the poster, marking it as a unique artifact from the artist's lifetime.

Printed in 1986, just a year before Warhol's passing, the poster represents a poignant moment in art history. It serves as a collector's gem, encapsulating the essence of Warhol's genius and his ongoing dialogue with American symbols. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, this poster is a tangible connection to Warhol's exploration of cultural icons and a testament to the enduring influence of the Pop Art movement.
