Warhol’s shad­ows come into the light

The National - News - The Review - - Roundup -

Andy Warhol is renowned for his pop art takes on Elvis Pres­ley and Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe. But this ex­hi­bi­tion in Bil­bao fea­tures his silk-screen can­vas paint­ings from the late 1970s. Warhol was 50 when he started the pro­ject and was not im­pressed at the time, writ­ing in his di­ary: “The show only looks good be­cause it’s so big.” While the ab­stract works are more sub­dued than his pop art clas­sics, they still fea­ture bright and vi­brant colours. Warhol com­pleted 102 of the pieces and all are on dis­play at the Guggenheim. Andy Warhol: Shad­ows runs at the Guggenheim Mu­seum Bil­bao un­til Oc­to­ber 2.
