Andy Warhol is without a doubt the most famous representative of Pop Art and Neuschwanstein Castle is probably the most photographed building in Germany. In his serigraph in colors, Warhol combines a photo template and painted lines serigraphed in a collage-like manner. The fairy tale castle of King Ludwig II is set in Andy Warhol's colorful pop art landscape. He himself had visited the popular Bavarian destination, popular in particular with, among others, American tourists, in 1971.
