Museum of Modern Art

Andy Warhol. 1987


This year,

the Museum of Modern Art in New York,
located in Midtown Manhattan, will exhibit a retrospective of my work. This museum has played an important role in the development and collection of modern art and, for this reason, has been identified as one of the largest and most influential museums of modern art in the world.

it offered; this is the city where anything is possible and becoming an artist was my first goal. In 1962, I had an exhibition at the Stable Gallery in New York, showing silkscreen prints with a flat uniformity that would become my style. The exhibition included portraits of the legendary and beautiful Marilyn Monroe, whose sudden and recent death had shocked

the entire country. However, the work that made me break out was the Campbell's soup can, as they were my first mass-produced consumer goods works. Although I painted them on canvas, they were done in such a way that they seemed to be mechanically reproduced. I had become a creator of beauty,

as well as a representative of American culture in the 1960s, and the work that brought me fame was exhibited in one of the most significant museums in the world, in the centre of the Big Apple.
