In 1981, Andy Warhol immortalized Mickey Mouse in "Double Mickey Mouse," a captivating artwork featuring two overlapping images of the beloved character, rendered in bold, luminous colors that epitomize Warhol's iconic style.To create this piece, Warhol meticulously hand-drew Mickey Mouse, using a stencil-like screen stretched over a mesh frame.
Each color demanded a separate screen, as Warhol skillfully forced ink through the screen onto canvas or paper. The result is a stunning series of 25 unique color screen prints, adorned with a diamond dust coating.
