Andy Warhol, father of American Pop Art, returns to Milan with a major monographic show (on view for the first time at Palazzo Reale!) featuring works from the collection of Peter Brant, an intimate friend of Warhol’s with whom he shared the most vibrant years, both artistically and culturally, in New York in the 1960s and ‘70s. More than 160 works, from his first drawings to his spectacular Last Suppers – presented right here in Milan at Warhol’s last show in 1987 – to his self portraits, by way of his more iconic works like Electric Chairs (1964), the famous portrait of Mao, his flowers and one of Warhol’s most famous masterpieces “Shot Light Blue Marilyn” (1964).
After Milan, the exhibition will travel to LACMA, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
