About the Artwork

Sitting Bull, the famous Hunkpapa Lakota Sioux chief who led his people in resistance against the U.S. government, has become an icon in American history. His image has been immortalized in this pop art painting and his legacy continues to inspire people today. One of the most interesting interpretations of Sitting Bull's image comes from the world of Pop Art, a movement that emerged in the 1950s and 1960s and celebrated popular culture in all its forms.

Pop Art was known for its vibrant colors, bold lines, and use of everyday images and objects. Artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Claes Oldenburg embraced popular culture as a source of inspiration, and Sitting Bull was no exception. In the 1970s, artist Robert Rauschenberg created a series of lithographs featuring Sitting Bull, which became instant classics of Pop Art.

Rauschenberg's lithographs depict Sitting Bull in bright, eye-catching colors, with bold lines and abstract shapes. He uses a variety of techniques to create a sense of depth and movement, such as overlapping images and playing with perspective. The result is a stunning tribute to Sitting Bull's strength and resilience, as well as a celebration of the Pop Art aesthetic.
