Art and Punishment

"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.
