Andy Warhol, the leading figure of the 1960s Pop Art avant-garde movement, is now one of the most acclaimed figures of the 20th century. He was a highly skilled multidisciplinary artist, debuting as a commercial illustrator, who originated controversial and necessary conversations on the value of fine versus commercial art. Warhol was a pop culture lover, obsessed with consumer goods, celebrities and advertising, using every day subject matter to depict a portrait of the America of his time. In his artistic career, the 70s are known for his renewed interest in social events and portraitures, moving progressively away from his commercial subject matter.
Portrait of the artists features ten different portraits of ten of the most influential contemporary artists of the 70’s, each of them rendered in unique vibrant colors. The artists portrayed are Lee Bontecou, Jasper Johns, Donald Judd, Roy Lichtenstein, Larry Poons, Robert Morris, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Frank Stella and Andy Warhol himself. Warhol is still one of the pivotal figures of contemporary art history and highly admired by galleries and collectors, a copy of this work being exhibited in MoMA’s permanent collection.
