Nobody since Picasso has meant more to the course of art history than Andy Warhol (1928-1987). Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection is an important exhibition that includes his signature icons from his earliest paintings to his innovations in silkscreen printing. The collection features the most famous images in Pop art, from the Campbell’s soup can and Marilyn Monroe, pioneering works made in the 1960s, to the late, great Vesuvius series, made just two years before his death in February 1987. Warhol’s appeal is uniquely universal. He seized the powerful tools of media and advertising right then in his own moment and, with an artistic alchemy that never fails to astonish, he returned the Campbell’s soup can to the supermarket aisle with the new aura of an artistic masterpiece. Even in person, he was an otherworldly presence whose rapid-fire production and mass-media ubiquity left an impression of distance, the way the celebrities he portrayed seemed to come from another world. One of the many strengths of this deep dive into his career is the way it draws him more closely to us. This is an opportunity to become acquainted with a more personal genius, in part through the intimacy of his magazine and record album designs (precious archival materials), his hand-colored flowers and some of his earliest interpretations of the Campbell’s Soup can and Marilyn Monroe portrait. Theme and variations bring us closer to the mind in creation, as we watch a basic idea develop in the hands of the artist.

The Bank of America Art in Our Communities Program was established in 2009 in order to share the company’s art collection with the widest possible audience through more than 140 exhibitions at museums.

Director Emerita Constance Schwartz will guest curate La Belle Époque, an exhibition capturing Paris’ age of elegance between 1880 and the eve of World War I in 1914. Celebrated for its hallmark joie de vivre, the Belle Époque became hailed as a Golden Age between the hardships of the Third Republic and the trauma of World War I. Through paintings and prints by artists including Henri Martin, Edgar Degas and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and a treasure-trove of decorative objects featuring Louis Comfort Tiffany’s luminous glasswork, this exhibition celebrates the exuberance and opulence of extravagant design, ostentatious luxury, and a life of leisure, cabarets and bistros.

The wheel of art history was turning fast when Pop spun to the top in the Sixties, displacing Abstract Expressionism after barely a decade of dominance. After the brooding challenge of abstraction, the contrast of snappy graphics and familiar references was a relief for many, and a magnet for new audiences. High and low met in the galleries and museums, set up by such media-savvy leaders as Andy Warhol, who now forces us to think of art in the supermarket aisle where the Campbell’s soup cans still dominate the shelves, and Roy Lichtenstein, whose Foot and Hand (1964) returns to the medium of “art” printmaking the shading and even pressure
of black outlines (no brush or pencil strokes) that he borrowed from the original sources, which included comic books and the cartoons found in bubble gum packages. Larry Rivers pumps the colors of the Fauves into the Mad Men icon of Joe Camel while, perhaps more subtly, Robert Rauschenberg gently lifts from newsprint the headlines and banal photographs of the day’s news (not that new a trope, if you recall the collages of Picasso and Braque, but they did not cloak them in Rauschenberg’s mist).
