ROME.- The first major monographic exhibition devoted to Andy Warhol, the father of Pop Art, has arrived to Rome after its highly successful period at the Palazzo Reale in Milan, where it attracted more than 225,000 visitors and was highly acclaimed by the critics. From 18 April to 28 September 2014, one hundred and fifty Works by the American artist are on display at the Museo Fondazione Roma, Palazzo Cipolla. These works have been loaned by The Brant Foundation, whose founder and President Peter Brant–a personal friend of Warhol and a well-known collector – is also the curator of the exhibition, with contributions from Francesco Bonami.
The exhibition illustrates Warholʼs entire professional career, presenting his greatest masterpieces from each period. As Francesco Bonami says “the exhibition provides a very rare opportunity for the public to see one of the most important collections of work by this American artist … built up not by an ordinary, albeit passionate collector, but by a great personality, Peter Brant, one of Warholʼs closest friends, with whom he experienced New Yorkʼs most artistically and culturally dynamic period in the 1960s and 1970s.
