Created in 1981, Myths consists of ten screenprints meant to capture the imaginary characters popular during the 20th century in American pop culture. Most of the images used were taken from history, literature, classic Hollywood films and television from the 1950s. Some of the famous American myths used are popular children’s characters such as Santa Claus and Mickey Mouse. To Warhol these characters represent childhood innocence. On the contrary, he also portrays the evilest of villains that were universally recognized during his life, The Wicked Witch of the West and Dracula.
