Show run: Now-September 3, 2017.
Lucien Hamelinck from the blog fic123.be (Culture US) reports that the sweeping retrospective of one of America’s iconic artists will be at The High Museum of Art. The High is the only East Coast venue to show “Andy Warhol: Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation” (June 3 through Sept. 3, 2017.
The exhibit is the largest of its kind, showing 250 prints and ephemera by Andy Warhol (American, 1928-1987). Warhol was a primarily a printmaker throughout his career. In 1962, he discovered silkscreen printing and eventually released his first portfolio series “Marilyn Monroe,” created at the legendary Factory Studio.
The works in the exhibition are exclusively from the collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation in Portland, Ore.
Hamelinck writes “Remarkable for their nearly exhaustive range, the Schnitzer Collection’s offer an opportunity to explore the breadth of Warhol’s influential graphic production over the course of four decades.”
