senator-edward-kennedy-by-andy-warholWith the passing of  the “Liberal Lion”, The National Portrait Gallery is installing a silkscreen print of Senator Edward Moore Kennedy by Andy Warhol yesterday.  Warhol made several silkscreens of Senator Kennedy including the bolder one (at right). The silkscreened portrait of Kennedy was actually created in 1980 to raise funds for Kennedy’s campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination and The Portrait Gallery acquired the portrait in 2000. Notice Warhol’s use of the colors of the American flag and diamond dust. You can see the print in a first-floor gallery that is designated for remembrance of recently deceased individuals represented in the gallery’s collection.   Beat the crowds that are sure to be there in the coming days and check it out on your lunch break!
