Warhol's "Ten Endangered Species" singles collection, 1983

1. Siberian Tiger The Siberian Tiger, also known as the Amur Tiger, had less than 1,000 animals remaining in the wild (as of 2010). Because of the extremely low numbers, serious conservation efforts continue to be in effect.

Auction results: In March 2011, Christie's in London sold a 1983 screenprint of 'Siberian Tiger' (in colors; on Lenox Museum Board; 38 in. square [963 mm. square]; signed in pencil; numbered 'AP 11/30') for $61,597 USD.
       2. Tree frog In life, the Pine Barrens tree frog (Hyla andersonii) is vivid green with white and black streaks. However, Warhol used red and yellow for his print, in line with his characteristic use of bold colors. The tree frog was listed as endangered by the US Fish and Wildlife Service because of its restricted range and declining population, habitat loss, and pollution. Its protection status was improved from 'endangered' to 'threatened' in 2003.

The famed Pop artist created his Endangered Species print portfolio as a commission from New York art dealers Ronald and Frayda Feldman. According to Matt Wrbican, archivist at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, the initial idea sprang from a conversation between the Feldmans and Warhol about shared environmental concerns. The three worked together to choose the species portrayed.

Auction results: In 2008, Sotheby's in London sold a 'Pine Barrens Tree Frog' screenprint (in colors; on Lenox Museum Board; 38 in. square [965 mm. square]; signed in pencil; numbered 13/150) for $43,000 USD.
       3. African elephant When Warhol produced his prints, the main pressure on the African elephant (Loxodonta Africana) was ivory hunting. An international ban on the ivory trade came into effect in 1990, so the main threat to this species is now habitat loss.

Auction results: In April 2013, Bonhams in San Francisco sold a similar 'African Elephant' screenprint (in colors; on Lenox Museum Board; 38 in. square [965 mm. square]; signed in pencil; numbered 106/150) for $40,000 USD.
         4. Giant panda The Giant Panda has been the focus of conservation efforts for nearly two decades; sadly, less than 3,000 pandas live in the wild (as of 2010). Their numbers remain low due to continued habitat loss and fragmentation. Fortunately, there are forty reserves today that protect the Giant Panda habitat, as opposed to only thirteen twenty years ago.

Auction results: Christie's in London, in March 2013, sold a 1983 'Giant Panda' screenprint (in colors; on Lenox Museum Board; 38 in. square [965 mm. square]; signed in pencil; numbered 120/150) for $60,360 USD.
           5. Bald eagle Of the animals Warhol depicted, only the bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) is no longer deemed to be in trouble (as of May 2012). Its population suffered severely from the shell-thinning effects of the pesticide DDT, as well as from persecution and power-line electrocutions. But thanks to various measures, including a ban on the use of DDT, the numbers of this iconic bird are recovering, with nearly 10,000 breeding pairs. In 2007 the bald eagle was removed from the US list of endangered and threatened species.

Auction results: Sotheby's in London, in 2014, sold a 1983 'Bald Eagle' screenprint (in colors; on Lenox Museum Board; 38 in. square [965 mm. square]; signed in pencil; numbered 31/150) for $59,375 USD.

6. Bighorn ram This is a sweet story. When conservationist Russell Burnham noted in 1939 that there were less than 150 Bighorn Rams in Arizona, the Boy Scouts there took notice. Nearly 10,000 scouts initiated a state-wide campaign to save the animal. Their efforts lead to protecting 1.5 million acres of Arizona habitat, coupled with reintroduction programs; both efforts have allowed the Bighorn Ram to make a comeback; no longer endangered, it's now listed as a 'slight concern.'

Auction results: Christie's in New York, in November 2012, sold a 1983 'Bighorn Ram' screenprint (synthetic polymer and silkscreen inks on canvas; 60 in. square [152.4 cm. square]; numbered 'PA29.008') for $842,500 USD.
       7. Black rhino Efforts to conserve the black rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis), including a crackdown on the illegal trade in their horns, have been rewarded with a rhino renaissance in recent years. The total estimated population for its four subspecies is up from 2,410 in 2004 to 4,880 in 2010, but it's now listed as critically endangered, because it's now far below the late 1960 figure of about 70,000 across Africa, although when Warhol produced this portrait in 1983 the total had crashed below 15,000.

Auction results: Christie's in London, in September 2012, sold a 1982 'Black Rhinoceros' screenprint (in colors; on Lenox Museum Board; 38 in. square [965 mm. square]; signed in pencil; numbered 86/150) for $34,553 USD.
     8. Silverspot butterfly The San Francisco Silverspot Butterfly was once widespread throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Most of its population became lost due to urban development. The Silverspot is believed to be extinct in San Francisco; elsewhere, only two of the fourteen populations can be found, and only one of those is in a protected area. Urban development's devastating impact continues to affect remaining populations even in protected areas.

Auction results: Christie's in New York sold a 1983 'San Francisco Silverspot' screenprint in April 2011 (unique colors; on Lenox Museum Board; 40 in. square [1016 mm. square]) for $50,000 USD.
      9. Orangutan In 1983, Warhol created his Endangered Species print portfolio; in 1986, he worked in collaboration with Kurt Benirschke of the San Diego Zoo to produce the book Vanishing Animals, bringing his Pop sensibility and style to the images of an elephant, rhinoceros, butterfly, eagle and other threatened species. Though the message of the images is global, the images themselves are distinctly 'Warhol.'

Auction results: Christie's in New York sold a 1983 'Orangutan' screenprint (fresh colors; on Lenox Museum Board; 38 in. square [965 mm. square]; signed in pencil; numbered 'V/X') for $25,000 USD.
       10. Grevy's zebra Grevy's zebra (Equus grevyi) originally lived in semi-arid scrublands and plains in east Africa. Hunting, habitat loss, and competition with livestock for access to water has led to a rapid decline in their population: they are now found only in northern Kenya and southern Ethiopia. Legally protected in Ethiopia and protected by a hunting ban in Kenya, the zebras' population has been considered stable since 2008.

Auction results: In April 2011, Christie's in New York sold a 1983 'Grevy's Zebra' print (unique colors; on Lenox Museum Board; 38 in. square [965 mm. square]; in very good condition) for $50,000 USD.

The "Endangered Species" project was the result of a conversation between Warhol and Frayda and Ronald Feldman, his New York art dealers, concerning the ecological issue of beach erosion. With his interest and curiosity in animals, Warhol was keen to take on this project, proposed by the Feldmans. The vibrantly colored 1983 screenprints, which collectively encompass sustainability and stewardship, were described by Warhol as "animals in makeup." All are portrayed majestically, yet they betray a poignant resignation to their fate.
