was a French naval vessel that was stuck on a sandbar, with a total of 400 people on board and only six small lifeboats.

(You can see Warhol going through these last steps exactly in the provided video) Here is a pretty short video clip that shows Andy performing a screen print. Here he is creating a Marlon Brando work: (Links to an external site.) ( Links to an external site.)
