This study first examines ethnographical studies of Carpatho-Rusyns here and abroad with respect to religious and folk art familiar to Warhol; then examines the biographies of Warhol prepared by his close friends and co-workers in regard to his ethnic beliefs, customs, and practices in relation to his art; next it examines the autobiographical and diary evidence by Warhol himself on his ethnic identity concealments and disclosures; finally, it examines nearly four decades of his art.
