The exhibition ANDY WARHOL: The Marilyn Maquette: Obscure, Unknown… And Iconic, brings to light one of Warhol’s most obscure and unknown works, while paying homage to his most iconic and popular subject; Marilyn Monroe. The exhibition features nine handmade rugs by Henzel Studio (Est. 1999, Sweden) created in close collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Alongside these are virtual replicas of fourteen original Warhol paintings made available by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, further contextualizing the artist’s accomplishments of both replicating, abstracting and deconstructing the recognizable subject.
