Warhol’s use of repetition of imagery within a work was common, as seen in Double Elvis. Warhol was interested in the techniques involved in stop-motion animation, as evidenced by the choice of subject matter in Double Mickey Mouse 269. The repetition of the same image of Mickey Mouse becomes more of a pattern than a development of movement. This is the second print that Warhol created of Mickey Mouse, after his first Mickey Mouse 265 in his Myths portfolio. Notably, Double Mickey Mouse is one of Andy Warhol’s top 10 most valuable prints ever sold.

Double Mickey Mouse 269 by Andy Warhol as Part of His Larger Body of Work

The image in Double Mickey Mouse was born out of the single Mickey Mouse print created in 1981 as a part of Warhol’s Myths portfolio. Most of the images in Warhol’s Myths series are taken from 1950s television or old Hollywood films. They portray the universal view of America’s once captivating and commanding past. Other pieces included in the series are characters loved by children such as Mickey Mouse, Howdy Doody, and Santa Claus, as well as fictional figures like Dracula, The Wicked Witch of the West, and Uncle Sam. It has been said that Warhol considered each of these characters to be facets of his personality.
