The Prize

Dracula By Andy Warhol

Title: Dracula - 1981
Size 95cm x 95cm
Unframed
The works are publisher stamped on the reverse

Warhol’s interest in Dracula can be dated to 1974 when he produced a film entitled “Blood for Dracula” directed by Paul Morrissey.

The film is a witty spoof on the various Dracula tropes interspersed with homoerotic sex and outrageous violence.

It has become a cult classic. In 1981 Warhol embarked on the “Myths” portfolio and included Dracula. It has been written that the “Myths” prints all contain some facet of Warhol’s personality. With his very pale skin and night owl habits he looked like a vampire and was affectionately called “Drella” by his friends – combining the words Dracula and Cinderella.

Dracula is part of Warhol’s Myths portfolio, which also included characters such as Superman, Mickey Mouse, and Dracula.

The myths Warhol presents are well known. Their roots are in ancient beliefs, folklore, allegorical tales, and are based on traditional stories and media creations. They represent fantasies, dreams, hopes and fears.

Included in the series are: Dracula, Howdy Doody, Mammy, Mickey Mouse, Santa Claus, Superman, The Shadow, The Star, The Witch and Uncle Sam. Most of Warhol's myths are derived from photographs he has taken especially for this series.
