Liz, demonstrates Warhol's enthrallment with Taylor as the epitome of beauty, sexuality, and excess. With an MGM publicity photograph as the source material for the print, Warhol used brilliant colors that helped allude to the vibrancy of the actress. Also inherent in the work is the scandal surrounding Taylor, and the turmoil in both her personal and professional life. Liz remains a dynamic embodiment of both allure and misfortune.
