Andy Warhol (1928-1987) summed up more or less like the meaning of his work. A simple job for everyone, “pop”, as all his art. And it is starting from this principle that Laura Calvi has built the exhibition, “Andy Warhol’s Stardust,” from 5 April at the Museum of the twentieth century, in collaboration with Bank of America Merrill Lynch who has served part of his collection. Arranged in chronological order prints choices put the light on the artist’s career from the late sixties. Here then are the unmistakable ‘Campbell’s Soup’, the series of ‘Flowers’ and ‘Sunset’, rewritten, often by his assistants of the Factory, Warhol but personally retouched, and proposals here as in a supermarket. They are followed by portraits of the stars, the great thinkers of the last century, but also the drag queen in New York, Santa Claus, comic book heroes, “Myths” that the democratic revolution in bold Warhol find themselves on the same level: Einstein such as Monroe and Mickey Mouse.
