Bored with exhibitions of Warhol’s pop art? A new exhibition, Andy Warhol: Portraits and Landscapes may open up a whole new perspective on the last century’s most famous artist.
The exhibition at the Timothy Taylor Gallery brings together over 200 black and white photographs taken by Warhol in the last ten years of his life. Taken mainly in New York, they offer an interesting documentary of the late Seventies and Eighties.
The collection also indicates his preoccupation with documenting every day life with subjects including dog-food, chairs, sidewalks, rubbish and place settings. They show Warhol as a lover of the mundane – a sharp contrast to his celebrity obsessed paintings.
The exhibition runs from 18th January to 29th February at the Timothy Taylor Gallery, 15 Carlos Place London W1K 2EX. Further details can be found on the gallery’s website
