Seasoned Warholians flocked to The Brant Foundation Art Study Center in Greenwich CT, May 12, for the non-profit’s spring opening party and preview. The event, in aid of the first comprehensive survey of Andy Warhol’s oeuvre from the foundation’s collections, presented an astonishing selection of the artist’s greatest hits.
Leonardo DiCaprio, Christopher Walken and Owen Wilson were amongst the über A-listers that turned out to pay homage to Pop’s arch protagonist. Meanwhile the art crowd elite, Jeffrey Dietch, Julian Schnabel and Larry Gagosian to name a few, left Frieze behind to soak up 200 works spanning Warhols entire career.
The show reflects on Peter Brant’s lasting dedication to the artist and boasts some of Warhols most iconic works; from his Marilyn and Liz, Elvis and Mao portraits, to the morbid “Twelve Electric Chairs”, accompanied by over 60 polaroid works and two films.
The appointment only exhibition runs through September 2013 – the perfect excuse to escape the oppressive New York City heat for Connecticut’s greener pastures this summer.
