    What medium did he use in these? Did he actually brush these by hand?

    warhol admirer,
    In 1983, Andy Warhol created a series of ten color screenprints that portrayed endangered animals from around the world: Using brilliant colors — characteristic of his signature style — and poignant expressions suggestive of the animal’s fate, Warhol creates a dynamic tension between art and reality.

    The Endangered Species portfolio was commissioned by Ronald and Frayda Feldman, long-time political and environmental activists who support innovative art projects and installations through their art gallery, Ronald Feldman Fine Art, New York. According to the Feldman’s, the idea for the portfolio emerged after conversations with Warhol about ecological issues that included a discussion about beach erosion. Warhol was always interested in animals and when Ronald Feldman proposed the idea, the artist embraced it.

    also, warhol, being the genius he was, usually got others to do his painting for him.
