Bid on this notorious piece, Andy Warhol Screenprint Howdy Doody Myths Unsigned Trial Proof 38 x 38

Howdy Doody was a popular freckle-faced marionette in the children’s television show Howdy Doody, which aired in the 1940s, ‘50s and ‘60s and incorporated circus and Western frontier themes.

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

Unlike many of his well-known works which were appropriated from the mass media, Warhol’s reproduction of Howdy Doody’s image is based on a photograph of the original Howdy Doody that Warhol took himself.
