In this image, Andy Warhol captures Trafalgar Square, a public space and tourist attraction in London, England. Featured in this image is Nelson’s Column, a monument that stands in the square to commemorate Admiral Horatio Nelson’s death at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Warhol has purposely created a silhouette by backlighting his subject to establish a scene that feels both dramatic and mysterious. — Gift of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts Inc.
