In 1976, Warhol visited Tehran to take photos for a portrait of Empress Farah Pahlavi. In 1978 he painted the Shah and his twin sister Princess Ashraf as well, though the Revolution prevented these portraits from being publicly displayed in Iran. This lecture considers Warhol's Iranian portraits in multiple contexts: the OPEC oil crisis; Warhol's celebrity portraits of the '70s; and today's global art market, in which these paintings help pose key questions about American Pop's global legacies.
