On July 20, an exhibition of the best works by classics of contemporary pop art by Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, Roy Lichtenstein, Alex Katz and Patrick Nagel opens in the Pomegranate Yard.
Pop art is the last "big style" in the modern history of art. The exposition of the world’s most sought-after contemporary artists Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, Roy Lichtenstein, Alex Katz and Patrick Nagel will be presented within the walls of the 17th century historic building, now the cultural and exhibition center Granatny Dvor, located on Patriarch Ponds.
Andy Warhol’s famous work - a portrait of Marilyn Monroe - is presented at the exhibition in four colors, limited edition, lithography. Artist, sculptor, designer, director, producer, writer, collector Andy Warhol is one of the most famous and controversial figures in art of the second half of the twentieth century. His work embodies the triumph and commercial success of American pop art, and the name itself has become a trademark.
Duplicating monotonous images — endless rows of Coca-Cola, Campbell’s cans of soup, pencil dollar bills, portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Liz Taylor, Elvis Presley — allowed Warhol to organize a real “production” of contemporary art at his Factory (as the artist called the workshop).
Tom Wesselman - this is to him, in full measure, the words "witty, young, sexy." This is the time of the sexual revolution in America and Europe, and Wesselmann, like no one, conveys this unbridled glee of youth and unlimited freedom. The exhibition features two works by Bedroom Blond and Eros.
Wesselmann’s works are included in the collections of the most famous museums of modern art in the world - the Whitney Museum in New York, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Sydney Museum of Modern Art and others. Favorite genres of the artist are nudes and still lifes; Wesselmann’s early works — challenging collages, assemblies, and installations — make extensive use of images of finished things, everyday goods taken from advertising catalogs, often combined with a female body image. World fame was brought to him by the series "Big American Nudes" (1961), which imitates the style of posters.
Patrick Nagel, an author who does not fit into any precise definition of style. Some consider him an art deco artist, others attribute him to pop art. All in their own right. The artist, who became famous, thanks to his many years of cooperation with Playboy magazine. Favorite artist of Hugh Hefner. Reproductions of his works are fun in every bar, then pop art? A wonderful draftsman, with an incredible sense of color and line. All works are imbued with subtle eroticism, but never turning into vulgarity.
Roy Lichtenstein was a master of the stereotype and the most complex of the famous pop design performers in terms of his visual analysis of the convention and his ironic exploitation of the styles of the past. The paintings of Roy Lichtenstein for which he is now known became the result of his long search and apprenticeship. Alex Katz American artist, known for his large scale, simplified images of family and friends. Katz was the son of Russian immigrants, born in 1927 and raised in New York. Alex Katz studied at the Cooper Union School of Art in New York and at the Skoonigan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine
Alex Katz is an American artist and sculptor who continues the figurative traditions of pop art. He became famous more than full-size portraits. Alexa Katz is distinguished by his ability to reflect his loved ones in the art - the wife of Ada and the son of Vincent. Alex’s wife, Ada, played an important role in her husband’s creative life. Katz’s works are presented in museums in the USA, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, England. Born July 24, 1927 in Brooklyn.
Alex Katz is one of the most expensive contemporary artists. The auction record for his works is $ 666 thousand - a private American collector paid for the 1972 Blue Umbrella (auction at Christie’s, November 2001).
The cultural and exhibition center Granatny Dvor opened its doors to visitors in early 2017. During the first six months of its activity, high-profile projects in the field of art culture were presented - exhibitions of photographs, paintings, art performances, concerts and performances.
