Andy Warhol is probably most famous for his pop series, but he also produced more serious works. For the Jackies, Warhol used images of Jacqueline Kennedy taken just before and after the assassination of her husband. The Marilyns, a series on Marilyn Monroe, came just after her suicide.

When Andy's pop art abounded in 1963, he announced that he would create a darker series called Death and Disaster. This series included roughly 150 paintings that alternated celebrity portraits with grisly subjects such as car crashes, suicide and electric chairs. Most of the photographs Andy used for this series were "found" pieces.

After this series, a friend suggested he may wish to move to another subject and pointed out some flowers in a magazine. The result was Warhol's series of commercially successful poppy flowers. Some say this series predicted the American Flower Power movement ahead of its time.

In 1964, he painted a black and white mural for the New York World Fair called The Thirteen Most Wanted Men. This is a work in black and white of police mug-shots of criminals. It caused a controversy when Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller ordered that it be removed and rejected Andy's suggestion for replacing it. Andy ended up painting over it in silver.

The Last Supper paintings, often considered Warhol's finest late works, are based on the renowned painting by Leonardo Da Vinci. Approximately half of the dozen vast paintings were made by silk-screening and the other half by outlining the image as projected on the canvas.
