30 Nov-16 Jan 2005. This exhibition of over 100 prints, photos and books is the first-ever retrospective of the US pop artists work in Madrid. Capricious, maniacal, neurotic and egocentric were just some of the expletives thrown the way of Warhol in the 1960s as he revolutionized the forms and conventions of his medium. His contribution to the history of artwork may be limited but he changed forever the image of the artist from reclusive Bohemian to self-centred, attention-seeking diva. In addition to the 100 lithographies and photolithographs, the exhibition includes 15 photographs, 22 books and 16 films by Warhol as well as the I shot Andy Warhol documentary about the attempt on the artists life. If you are in Madrid this Christmas and have never visited a Warhol exhibition do not miss this opportunity to see the classic Campbell soup, Liz Taylor or Mao Tze Tung series of prints as well as the famous Kiss from 1963, My Hustler of 1965, or Chelsea Girls.
