Made in 1983, the portfolio consists of 10 different screenprints, each with an edition size of 150, making the existing pieces quite rare. This number (121) is a unique color variant.

Andy Warhol’s Endangered Species portfolio was commissioned by Ronald and Frayda Feldman, longtime political and environmental activists. Warhol had always had an interest in animals and after a conversation with the couple about pressing ecological issues the idea arose to create this series. Using brilliant, almost psychedelic colors and poignant expressions (suggestive of the animals fates) Warhol created a stunning display that is still relevant today.
