Spring into Summer with Andy Warhol and Friends!
06/10/17 - 08/20/17
The exhibition Spring into Summer with Andy Warhol and Friends!
takes an unusual approach to this most famous of Pop artists.
Although we tend to associate Warhol’s work with artifice and mass production
think of his bold images of Marilyn Monroe and Campbell’s Soup cans
there is another side to the artist that is often overlooked,
his interest in the natural, the real, and the intimate.
The exhibition builds on three important works in the Bruce Museum collection:
Warhol’s Little Red Book, 1971,
a gift from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Arts,
featuring ten unique polaroid portraits of the artist’s friends
(New Canaan architect Philip Johnson and his partner David Whitney, fashion model Donna Jordan, art critic Barbara Rose, and a self-portrait);
Flowers (Hand-Colored), 1974, a suite of ten silkscreens prints depicting floral still-lives, given to the Bruce by Peter Brant
two large silkscreen portrait prints,
Sachiko, 1977, gifts of the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation.
