KAREN KAIN 236 AS PART OF ANDY WARHOL’S LARGER BODY OF WORK
The Karen Kain portrait is a colored screen print created with diamond dust on Lenox museum board in 1980. Karen Kain captivated Warhol as she did to audiences around the world who watched her as a principal ballet dancer in the National Ballet of Canada. The screen print was based off of a Polaroid taken by Warhol in his famed studio, The Factory. Kain admitted to it taking many years to warm up to the portrait done of her, her print now proudly hangs in her dining room.
