    Warhol painted five colored Marilyns in 1965 with different-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 located in The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Printed on heavyweight artist paper, it has been custom-framed with hand-finished molding. Andy Warhol was the preeminent Pop artist of the 20th century and a master of myriad media, from film to silkscreen to drawing. Fascinated by celebrity and by beauty in its most superficial, elemental form, he made his subjects immortal and forever larger-than-life.

    Established in 1955, MunnWorks is known for its superiorly crafted custom-made frames for fine art and mirrors. Its frames hang in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the de Young Museum in San Francisco, and the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. The company's own holdings include many important works of art by masters of the 20th century, from Dalí to Matisse.
