Andy Warhol (1928-1987)
The “Mammy” character is one that is not known in one particular context, but is seen in various forms of pop culture, present in movies like "Gone With the Wind", in comic strips and cartoons like "Tom and Jerry". The earliest characterization of the Mammy figure was in Harriet Beecher Stowe’s “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”. Over the years, Mammy has become a largely mythologized character that is mostly seen as a positive maternal figure, as the way Warhol has portrayed her. He chose to include her in his Myths portfolio as a character who makes up an intricate and developed narrative of American Pop culture.
