Andy Warhol Marilyn 1962 (Purple) by Richard Pettibone
Artist Richard Pettibone, has been one of the pioneers of appropriation art. Pettibone has devoted his career to making small reproductions of works by Constantin Brancusi, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Stella and other artists whose fame far exceeded his. His artwork is described as “cloning”, which has resulted in “art that he can call his own”, a style stemming from the umbrella of ‘Dada’. Richard Pettibone’s art for sale has a comical asymmetry between his efforts and the artists appropriated from, but there is also a mysterious quality, leaving one to ponder.
