Art Week: Day 5

Original Post: Mao at the Met
Date: February 18, 2012 at 10:13 AM
[NOTE: I have considerably more than 5 favorite posts in the Art category. This retrospective thing (see Retrospective) is hard].

Andy Warhol's iconic portrait of Chairman Mao Zedong at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Although the size and power of the piece largely prompted the photo, the Chinese tourist standing transfixed in front of it may also have had something to do with my taking this picture. [NOTE: Mao, 1973, acrylic and silkscreen on canvas, Accession Number: 1977.226.9].
