In 1983, Andy Warhol created a series of ten color screenprints that portrayed endangered animals from around the world: Siberian tiger, San Francisco silverspot, Orangutan, Grevy's zebra, Black rhinoceros, Bighorn ram, African elephant, Pine Barrens tree frog, Giant panda and Bald eagle. Using brilliant colors - characteristic of his signature style - and poignant expressions suggestive of the animal's fate, Warhol creates a dynamic tension between art and reality.
The Endangered Species portfolio was commissioned by Ronald and Frayda Feldman, long-time political and environmental activists who support innovative art projects and installations through their art gallery, Ronald Feldman Fine Art, New York.
Warhol was always interested in animals and when Ronald Feldman proposed the idea, the artist embraced it.
