Skarstedt’s Upper East Side Gallery
20 East 79th Street
Skarstedt is pleased to present Andy Warhol: Self Portraits (Fright Wigs), an exhibition of five, monumental works from the artist’s final self-portrait series which will be on view Completed in 1986, less than a year before Warhol’s untimely death, these haunting self-portraits have been championed as some of Warhol’s most iconic paintings.
The Self Portrait (Fright Wig) series represents a culmination of themes present in Warhol’s oeuvre. Throughout his career, Warhol painted portraits of celebrities, politicians and socialites that he considered the icons of contemporary life. Here he places himself in that same category, elevating his own status and the status of the artist.
Exhibit will be open Thursday February 23rd – Saturday April 22nd
