June 3, 1968, Valerie Solanas, who previously worked with Warhol as an actress, was in his “Factory” and released three bullets into his stomach. After experiencing clinical death, Andy, however, did not testify against Solanas. Very afraid of pain, disease and death, and at the same time greatly interested in these topics, after the assassination the artist almost completely focused on them. “Pistol”, created after a decade and a half after the incident, shows a copy of the weapon from which Solanas made the shots. Perhaps Warhol thus tried to look fear in the face.
