Andy Warhol (b. 1928 Pittsburgh, d. 1987 NY) lived and worked in NY. He was one of the most prolific and influential artists of his time, becoming a leading artist in the Pop Movement of the 1960’s, and working across a wide range of media, controversially blurring or collapsing the boundaries between high and low culture. Warhol has become a cultural icon, and his impact is felt today across the world. Selected solo exhibitions include: Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, Germany (2013); Teylers Museum, Haarlem, The Netherlands (2013); Louisiana Museum, Humlebaek, Denmark (2013); Hayward Gallery, London (2008-09); Grand Palais, Paris, France (2009); Lousiana Museum, Humlebaek, Denmark (2000); Kunsthalle, Hamburg, Germany (1999); Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (1999); International Center for Photography, New York (1999); Kunsthalle, Basel, Switzerland (1993); Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (1989); University of Pennsylvania–Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, US (1989); Serpentine Gallery, London (1989); and Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain, Jouy-en-Josas, France (1989).
