Warhol Retrospective At Tate Modern
Sorry to intrude on the territory of London blogger, Captain JP, but I had to post a few words about the upcoming Andy Warhol restrospective at London's Tate Modern museum.
The controversial 20th century American artist who launched the Pop Art movement in the 1960s is perhaps best remembered for his posterized multiple image prints of iconic figures from American culture like Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, Muhammad Ali, and Elizabeth Taylor.
But the highlight of the Tate exhibit will be the first public showing of a recently discovered print of American sailing icon Tillerman.
I imagine JP will have more details for us when the exhibit opens in April.
