Andy Warhol is one of the most influential and important artists in the second half of the 20th century. His work has made a major impact in the film, fashion, and art industry. Warhol was a leading figure in the visual art movement also known as POP ART.
The Andy Warhol series at the Whitney Museum opened November 12th and the exhibit is massive. There are over 350 works on display and there is an off-site display by Dia of the painting “Shadows” (bottom right image).
Andy Warhol “retired” from painting in 1965, and began working on several different projects. One of those projects included film. He created several short films which are on display in the gallery.
I highly recommend checking out the exhibit, “Andy Warhol- From A to B and back again”, at the Whitney Museum. It’s on view from November 12th – March 31st, 2019. The exhibition is flooded with decades of culture and emotion.
