March 18 - July 13 2009
Exhibition
Les Galeries nationales du Grand Palais In 1962, Andy Warhol painted portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Liz Taylor, and revisited the Mona Lisa and Elvis Presley. From 1967 to 1987, he fulfilled commissions and using a process that he began to adopt systematically, produced the portraits of dozens of different personalities, celebrated or unknown, re-establishing the portrait genre, by introducing new codes. Warhol held up a mirror in which the social microcosm and the bigger world beyond could see themselves reflected. Two hundred and fifty works - selected from the thousand portraits executed since the early 1960s - are on show, illustrating the major themes that open the exhibition with a retrospective vision. The Galeries nationales du Grand Palais will be setting out to demonstrate the effect of the principle of repetition that was a central preoccupation of Warhol's work during this period. In so doing it presents the first major collection of paintings that form an unprecedented archive in the history of painting and photography. Exhibtion organised by the Réunion des musées nationaux in collaboration with the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. The exhibition is supported by LVMH / Moët Hennessy . Louis Vuitton Open daily, except Tuesdays, from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.. Closed on Thursdays at 8:00 p.m.. Full price: 11 € - Reduced rate: 8 €
