"No artist has captured the kafkaesque banality of modern capital punishment better than Andy Warhol, in his 1962 silkscreen print series, Orange Disaster, showing fifteen monotonously identical still-frame photographs of the electric chair in a bleak and empty prison room..."  Edgerton, Samuel Y. " When Even Artists Encouraged the Death Penalty." Law & Literature 15 (2003): 235.
