1.12 - Andy Warhol's Cat

MONKEY ISLAND, FEBRUARY, 1987 - Not well publicized was the fact that, just before he died (and possibly a leading cause), Andy Warhol spent some time on Monkey Island. He really didn't care for the place and departed after barely a quarter of an hour, complaining of a gallstone attack. But being the prolific artist that he was, he was able to create several pieces before he left. Here we see one of his silk screenings of a well-known local cat, Batman.
