'Telephone' by Andy Warhol (1962) in high resolution

In 1962, Andy Warhol abandoned his commercial illustration work and made Telephone, a straightforward black-and-white painting of an antiquated telephone. One of many hand-painted representations of quotidian objects the artist made during the early 1960s, it evolved out of his interest in elevating commercial imagery to fine-art status, and that positioned him at the forefront of the Pop art movement.
