Four Barbras (1992) belongs to a groundbreaking series of works Deborah Kass made as a cultural challenge to the legacy of Andy Warhol's screenprints from the 1960s. Kass employed Warhol's signature mass production printing process, but switched the content, swapping Warhol's chosen celebrities with images of people who were significant to her, such as artists Cindy Sherman and Elizabeth Murray, art historian Linda Nochlin, and perhaps most memorably Barbra Streisand. This project is fundamentally an effort to challenge the framework of art history—a history in which female and Jewish figures are frequently left out. In this and other images featuring Streisand's profile, she is cast in the role of Jackie Kennedy, one of Warhol's most iconic and enduring symbols. Warhol Project
