His notoriety originating from 300s BC, Alexander the Great has been considered one of the greatest military celebrities of all time. The historic figure has continued to serve as a representation of militaristic virtuoso, which has been perpetuated over thousands of years through literature and art. Warhol contributed to the veneration with his own depiction of the great leader based on a Hellenistic bronze bust. This work was the only series of Warhol’s to be influenced by classical sculpture; his other works were based on photographs and paintings. This print in particular is a trial proof, a one of a kind copy of a remarkable subject.
