Warhol's ability to outrage, shock and mock pop culture needs no elucidation. Born to a Czech immigrant couple in Philadelphia, he studied applied arts and spent several years in diverse graphic duties including fashion illustration for Glamour, Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. It wasn't until the 1960s that he began to apply the techniques of advertising to create the parodies that secured his fame. This poster is something of a visual pun: To advertise reptile shoes, Warhol twists a snake into the shape of a woman's pump.
