MCNAY ART MUSEUM

Andy Warhol: Fame and Misfortune

Introduction by René Paul Barilleaux. Text by Justin Spring.

Drawn from the rich collection of the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Warhol: Fame and Misfortune approaches Warhol’s career through the artist’s abiding obsession with fame and celebrity, and, by extension, with disaster and tragedy. These key themes resurface throughout Warhol’s paintings, works on paper, photographs, and film and video works, beginning with his iconic paintings and prints of the 1960s up until the last pictures created just before his untimely death in 1987. Warhol spent most of his life observing the famous even as he acquired fame for himself, and as a result, his visual meditations on fame (and fortune, and misfortune) are in many ways like a trip through a house of mirrors: as much reflections of the artist’s identity as they are trip through American culture of the 1960s, 70s and 80s.
PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The New York Review of Books

Martin Filler

"Andy Warhol: Fame and Misfortune" [offers] a penetrating examination of its subject's deep-seated obsession, from childhood onward, with celebrity and publicity that he developed from precocious juvenilia - tracings of movie-star advertising endorsements and the like - to the mesmerizing silk-screened images he created in the early Sixties of megastars such as Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, and Elvis Presley, after he abandoned his highly lucrative practise as one of New York's most-sought-after commercial artists to pursue the far less certain path of a high style painter.
