On this Andy Warhol’s limited edition print

Andy Warhol’s Hans Christian Andersen suite is a portfolio of four serigraphs, three of which were created adapting to the style of Andersen’s

fairy tale characters. Andy Warhol was inspired by Andersen’s particular characters, which is why he dedicated most of this suite to them,

with only one portrait of the author himself.


This series, completed in 1987, was printed by Rupert Jasen Smith in New York and published by Art Expo Danmark, Odense, Denmark.


Hans Christian Andersen became famous for his fairy tales that transcended age and culture. In consideration of the fact that Andy Warhol

was increasingly interested in the creation of portraits and series based on iconic figures, this edition is well linked to this philosophy of

thought being entirely dedicated to an extremely famous and talented author, creator of characters who had the ability to inspire the genius

of Warhol.
