Reporter Gina Williams featured Andy Warhol: Prints from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation in 1859 Magazine, noting that it shows a "complex side" of Warhol with over 250 of his works arranged chronologically at the Portland Art Museum. Williams calls it "a mesmerizing journey."
Portland philanthropist Jordan D. Schnitzer shares his enthusiasm for making his collection of over 10,000 contemporary art prints available to lend to museums and universities across the country through the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation. “It was the joy of sharing the art that totally possessed me,” he says of the first time he saw works from his collection on display.
The current show of Warhol's work, drawn from Schnitzer's collection, is the largest ever to be mounted. "What’s amazing, as a retrospective, is this is a chance to get into the mind of this man,” he tells Williams.
