Exhibition in St Peter's Square to explore Warhol's spiritual side.
The religious works of American Pop artist Andy Warhol will be the subject of an exhibition in the Vatican in 2019, according to The Art Newspaper.
Vatican officials are said to be in final talks with the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. The director of the Vatican Museums, Barbara Jatta, said: "We are very interested in exploring the artist’s spiritual side."
The exhibition is expected to include paintings from Warhol’s Last Supper series and memento mori canvases such as silkscreens of skulls.
The show will be held at the Braccio di Carlo Magno in St Peter’s Square where Warhol – a devout Catholic – met Pope John Paul II in 1980.
