Why we love this

In 1965, Warhol painted five "Marilyns" with brightly colored backgrounds and stored them at his studio, the Factory. Dorothy Podber, a friend, saw the recently completed paintings stacked against one another and asked Warhol whether she could shoot them. Believing that she meant photographing the paintings, Warhol agreed. Podber withdrew a small revolver from her purse and fired a shot into the stack of paintings, which became known as "The Shot Marilyns."
This piece is held in the collection of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Reproduced on heavyweight artist paper, this fine print has been custom-framed with hand-finished molding.
