At the Basilica of Pietrasanta, from September 26th, over 200 works by Andy Warhol will be exhibited with an entire section dedicated to Italy and a focus on the city of Naples.
An exhibition entirely dedicated to the myth of Andy Warhol reaches the Basilica of Pietrasanta in Naples which, from 26 September 2019 to 23 February 2020 and with over 200 selected works, gives the public a complete view of the artistic production of the American genius who revolutionized the concept of a work of art from the second post-war period.
Immortal icons, portraits, Polaroids and drawings: in the capital of Campania comes the Pop world that marked the rise of Warhol as the artist who radically changed any previous aesthetic definition, through myths of the Star System and merchandising like the timeless Campbell’s Soup, the screen-printed portrait of Marilyn derived from a frame by Gene Korman, the famous Mao serigraphs of 1972 and the famous Flowers of 1964.
Alongside works that tell the American scene at the beginning of the 20th century, in the rooms of Pietrasanta there are also works that reveal Warhol’s relationship with Italy and a focus dedicated to the city of Naples with his Vesuvius of 1985 and the Portrait of Beuys, realized in 1980 on the occasion of the exhibition held at the Amelio Gallery.
