‘Elizabeth Taylor I’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist David Studwell. Printed onto Magnani Litho Paper, the piece is from a limited edition of 20 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
David Studwell is a contemporary artist whose work explores the traditional print-making processes and cultures of the twentieth century. Taking photographic images of some of the century’s greatest icons and celebrities - from Al Capone to Marilyn Monroe - Studwell revitalises them with washes of retro colour, for a distinctly Pop-Art feel.
‘Elizabeth Taylor I’ depicts the iconic Hollywood starlet, her black and white portrait awash with hand filled technicolour tones, a la Warhol's Marilyn. Pillar-box red lips and a glittered, burnt-orange halter neck converge against a deep, vintage-blue background, for exceptional aesthetic prowess. Delightfully retro, ’Elizabeth Taylor I’ is post-Pop Art at its very best.
