Warhol Exhibit in Oklahoma

‘The Cult of Personality’ is a new exhibition at the University of Oklahoma’s Fred Jones Jr Museum of Art, reports The Oklahoman.

“On display along with Polaroid photos by Warhol, given to OU by the Warhol Foundation in 2008, is a group of offset lithographs from Warhol’s ‘Multiples Portfolio: Artists and Photographs series.

Multiple, full-color head shots of Marilyn Monroe as mega movie star are ‘canceled out,’ in a way, by the same image in black-and-white, in a Warhol diptych from the series, done in 1962, the year she died.”
