Warholized!, THE ANDY WARHOL MUSEUM,
The art collection of The Andy Warhol Museum
includes over 4,000 works in all media -- paintings, drawings, prints,
photographs, sculptures, and installation. The collection provides an in-depth
view of every period of the artist's creative life, from the 1940s to the 1980s.
Highlights of the collection include student works from Warhol's years at
Carnegie Tech (now Carnegie Mellon University); commercial art and sketchbook
drawings from his early years in New York City; masterpieces of Pop art, such as
his portraits of Marilyn, Liz, Elvis, Campbell's Soup Cans, Brillo Boxes and
Flowers, and Cow wallpaper and Silver Clouds; examples of great series, such as
his paintings on the subject of Death in America, Maos, Skulls, and Rorshach;
commissioned portraits and photographs from the 1970s and 80s; and monumental
late works--including hand-painted representations of popular imagery,
collaborations with the young artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, and the Last Supper
and Camouflage series. Punctuating this collection are Warhol's self-portraits
from throughout his career. The Warhol Museum exhibits approximately 500 works
from its permanent collection at any one time. The permanent collection
exhibitions rotate regularly, and there is also an active program of special
exhibitions at the Museum. Special exhibitions include on specific areas of
Warhol's work and the work of related artists (from Basquiat and Factory
photographer Billy Name, to Mariko Mori and Jean Cocteau), as well as
exhibitions devoted to specific themes.
