Camouflage is the final portfolio of screenprints produced by Warhol before his death in 1987, and they are widely considered to be among his most abstract and visually striking works of pop art. He worked closely with his assistant Jay Shriver to produce the images, which were inspired by forms and motifs of military clothing procured by Shriver from an army surplus shop close to Union Station in New York. By replacing the muted palette of camouflage clothing with bright and fluorescent colors that were popular in the 1980s, Warhol appropriated and transformed this military theme into pop art.
Warhol produced eight images for this portfolio, and it is rare to have all of them together in one suite with matching edition numbers. These works are from a small edition of 80 and are stamped and signed by Fredrick Hughes, the executor of the Warhol estate, as they were released after his passing.
