Footnotes

  • Myths is the first series of screenprints in which Warhol incorporated images from comics and cartoons. For the making of this series Warhol invited a number of actors and actresses to come to the Factory in fancy dress and pose as various Myths. Dracula representations are one of Warhol's most popular motifs.
    This portrait is based on a Polaroid photograph that Warhol took of his friend and male model Sean McKeon dressed in costume as Count Dracula.
