Overview

Phoenix Art Museum is proud to present Andy Warhol: Portraits, an exhibition organized by and featuring original works from The Andy Warhol Museum, one of the four Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh.

As an artist, Andy Warhol’s unique visual language tells the story of an artist fascinated with the phenomena of fame and celebrity. This exhibition features Warhol’s depictions of the persona that forever embedded celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, Sylvester Stallone and Prince – to name a few – into America’s cultural conscience as well as several of his self-portraits including silkscreen works, Polaroids of the artist in drag, and family photographs of a young Warhol.

Often cited as an icon of the Pop art movement, Warhol’s visual explorations span almost every available medium: drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, silk screening, sculpture, film and even music.

Andy Warhol: Portraits includes nearly 200 portraits, paintings and drawings produced by Warhol from the 1940s to the 1980s.

More than 25 years after his death, Warhol remains undeniably one of the most influential figures in Contemporary art. This comprehensive exhibition of portraiture by Warhol debuted at The Andy Warhol Museum in Spring 2010 and is on view at Phoenix Art Museum for the first time in the Southwest.
