Andy Warhol, The American Indian (Russell Means), 1976. A series of silkscreens on canvas currently on view at the Skarstedt gallery in London.

Via Phaidon: “Russell Means, the American Indian of the Oglala Sioux who was immortalized in an Andy Warhol silk screen, has died at the age of 72. Means, who combatted injustices against Native Americans became one of the most celebrated Indians since Sitting Bull and went on to appear in Hollywood films such as The Last of the Mohicans and eventually ran for the governorship of New Mexico.”
