'One night I dreamed that I painted a large American flag,' Johns has said of this work, 'and the next morning I got up and I went out and bought the materials to begin it.' I thought the same thing after watching the news.

The women on my painting are enjoying themselves in a hotel lobby in Las Vegas. As a painter I'm interested in small moments like this. To me it says a lot about todays society, about the way we see ourselves, the way we interact and also how we are influenced by all sorts of technologies, in this case the slot machines with its bright neon lights.

All the best, Gerard Boersma

The man on my painting is enjoying a painting of a cupcake by Wayne Thiebaud. Thiebaud is widely known for his colorful works depicting commonplace object like pies, lipsticks, paint cans, ice cream cones, pastries, and hot dogs. Because of his interest in objects of mass culture, he is associated with the pop art movement. Thiebaud uses heavy pigment and exaggerated colors to depict his subjects, and the well-defined shadows characteristic of advertisements are almost always included in his work.

The woman on my painting is enjoying a portrait of Elizabeth Taylor by Andy Warhol. This portrait reflects the artist’s fascination with female celebrity. He first painted her portrait in 1963 when she was at the height of her career. Yet she was also severely ill with pneumonia. In this portrait Warhol used a publicity photograph for Taylor’s film ‘Butterfly 8’ as the basis for the screenprint. It is typical of his 1960s Pop style with vibrant, flat blocks of color.

The woman on my painting is enjoying a self portrait from 1966 by Andy Warhol. In the latter part of his career, Warhol focused more and more on portraiture. He created portraits of people he admired: Michael Jackson, Grace Jones, Muhammed Ali as well as wealthy socialites he met on the New York social circuit.

By the mid-1960s, Warhol had amassed a huge public following. Engaging in the painting of self-portraits only further cultivated his fame. In time, Warhol’s self-portraits became as famous as the iconic portraits of Marilyn Monroe or Elizabeth Taylor. The artist had himself become a celebrity.

The woman on my painting is looking at a portrait of Jackie Kennedy by Andy Warhol. In the weeks that followed the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963, Warhol began to collect pictures of the widowed First Lady that flooded the popular press.

He had silkscreens made of his various Jackie images and began to print them on small canvases with blue- and gold-colored grounds. The close-cropped images here reproduces a moment shortly before any shots were fired and soon after.
