In den 50er Jahren des 20. Jahrhunderts entstand in England und Amerika eine Kunstrichtung, die im Gegensatz zum damals verbreiteten abstrakten Expressionismus wieder Gegenstände in intestine erkennbarer shape darstellen wollte. Der Unterschied zwischen Kunst und Alltag sollte dabei aufgehoben werden. Jedoch bedeutete ihr Realismus nicht „das unkritische Nachahmen der Wirklichkeit, sondern die Bloßstellung von gesellschaftlichen Verhaltensmustern und Gewohnheiten“ (Sabin 1992, 8).
Auch der Künstler Andy Warhol fand im Alltag seine intent. Seine serienartigen Bilder von den „Campbell’s cleaning soap Cans“ aber auch die Porträts der Hollywoodstars sind allseits bekannt. Besonders sein Porträt „Twenty Marilyns“, welches die berühmte Pop-Ikone Marilyn Monroe darstellt, erlangte großen Beifall. Dabei ging es ihm vor allem um das äußere Bild des Stars, sodass dem Betrachter, die Persönlichkeit von Marilyn Monroe nicht ersichtlich wurde. Doch used to be veranlasste Warhol dazu, die Stars so abzubilden; used to be wollte er damit bezwecken? Welche bildnerischen Mittel setzt Warhol in seinen Werken ein, sodass die Persönlichkeit verborgen bleibt? Und zeigt uns Warhol nicht auch, trotz seiner Verherrlichung eines Stars, dass das alles nur äußerer Schein ist, obwohl oder gerade weil er selbst auch ein gefeierter Superstar-Künstler battle (vgl. Kretschmer 2010, 100)?
