Artist: Warhol, Andy
This Italian 1982 exhibition poster makes use of one of Andy Warhol's reimaginings of a Giorgio de Chirico's 1913 oil painting, Piazza d'Italia - a metaphysical landscape the artist became known for. Although the two men worked in incredibly different styles, both often replicated their own works, creating self-copies or self-appropriations of their art. Poster is unlined and in excellent condition.
Andy Warhol (August 6, 1928 - February 22, 1987) was an American artist who was a leading figure on the visual art movement known as pop art. His works explore the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture and advertisement that flourished by the 1960s. His oeuvre ranged in many forms of media that include hand drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, silk screening, sculpture, film, and music. From autumn 1962 onward, Warhol's paintings were made almost exclusively by screen-printing photographic images on to coloured backgrounds. These works were executed with the help of assistants in the studio that he called The Factory.
