Ferens Art Gallery's second ARTIST ROOMS exhibition brings together over 50 works by the greatest pop artist of all.
Warhol's portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Muhammad Ali, Mickey Mouse and others are on display beside his iconic advertising posters for Campbell's soup and Brillo.The works featured range from the familiar images of the 1960s to the artist's less well-known, but no less significant, pieces from the 1980s. Organised with the assistance of the Future Ferens, a group of young volunteers, the exhibition teases out Warhol's themes of celebrity, consumerism and death.
