The work of a great artist - Inventor – Genius, will be at the Beurs van Berlage from the 27th of January until the 20th of June!
Take a look through the eyes of one of the most progressive man in history. Nearly 500 years later, his work is still as popular as ever. Born in Anchiano Italy, near Da Vinci, he studied under Verrocchio, and then moved on to Milan, where he painted “The Last Supper.” He also designed several inventions including the first parachute, which actually seemed to work.
Andy Warhol is central to the exhibition 'The Prints of Andy Warhol and other PopArtists' organised in the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam in July, August and September 2017. They consist ofe the extensive private collection of mostly screenprints by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Keith Haring and other PopArt artists, media entrepreneur Lex Harding has built up over the decades.
PopArt derived from Popular Art, an art movement that emerged in the sixties in America. PopArt's themes are borrowed from comic strips, advertising, television, newspapers and magazines. Since celebrities like Mao, Marilyn Monroe, Mick Jagger, Queen Beatrix and everyday objects, such as soup cans and Coke bottles were used as patterns, PopArt came to stand close to daily life.
