One gallery, one artistic super icon, one and a half month. On the black-painted walls of The Column Gallery, you can enjoy a brief, intense reunion with a distinguished selection of Andy Warhol's works from Louisiana's collection.
From Campbell’s soup cans to Jackie Kennedy, Chairman Mao, and Coca-Cola bottles… Warhol exploits the empty icons of pop culture and reproduces existing images.
The artistic execution provides no insight into the artist’s interiority. They are about the world outside the pictures.
Warhol (1928-1987) is arguably the most influential artist of the last half of the 20th century, in large part because his flat images communicate so effectively. There are no details, no individual brushwork, to get hung up on.
