Description

In Andy Warhol’s ‘Love’ series, the artist shows a nude couple in the middle of an embrace. Although shown as nude, the series presents a more romantic moment rather than an overtly sexualized scene. The full series provides a narrative of the two lovers embracing, as if leading up to the height of tension.

About Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol (born Andrew Warhola) (American, 1928-1987) was a leading figure in the Pop art movement. He is particularly known for the breadth of his oeuvre, as it encompassed painting, hand drawing, printmaking, photography, silk screening, sculpture, film and music. Fascinated with celebrity culture and status, his silkscreens of pop icons and mundane objects, were particularly successful and cemented his place as a “celebrity” artist. His studio, The Factory, was a famous gathering place that brought together distinguished intellectuals, drag queens, playwrights, Hollywood celebrities, and wealthy patrons.
