Notes: His vibrant screenprints are more commonly associated with Hollywood glamour queens Marilyn Monroe and Liz Taylor, yet Andy Warhol was also and animal lover and used his trademark style to highlight the plight of endangered animals. These works were generated from a truly unique collaboration of art and science. In 1986, one year before his death, Andy Warhol accepted a commission to present sixteen species of animals in utmost danger of extinction. The basis for his work was Dr. Kurt Benirschke's research in the same area, which resulted in the book Vanishing Animals published that same year. This unique color collage was a study for the book.
