Few American artists are as celebrated and notorious as Andy Warhol. His iconic paintings, silk screens, photography, films, and sculptures have become indelible representations of the American aesthetic, exploring the relationship between artistic expression and celebrity culture. This talk will examine Warhol’s works from his beginnings as a commercial illustrator in the 1950s, to his iconic Pop masterpieces of the early 1960s, the avant-garde films from the 1960s and ’70s, and his innovative use of readymade abstraction in the 1980s.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Pennington Public Library and the Hopewell Valley Arts Council.
