Andy Warhol created Teddy Roosevelt 386 for his Cowboys and Indians Portfolio in 1986. Warhol used an 1898 photograph of Teddy Roosevelt as a young Lieutenant Colonel in his Rough Rider uniform. Roosevelt is seen depicted in shades of blue with coral and yellow highlights. In this portfolio, Warhol reimagines images that contemporary pop culture remembers as the “Old American West.” Warhol depicted well known people associated with the “western culture” such as John Wayne, Annie Oakley, Roosevelt, and General George Custer alongside images of lesser-known Native American figures and motifs. Warhol was ironically commenting on how American pop culture had romanticized the Old West. The West that Warhol portrays in this series is the West that is familiar to most people instead of the reality of what was the West. Warhol used this series to explore the relationship between fact and legend and the recognizable figures depicted make this a favorite among collectors.
