I Love You So

After posting three photos of the Andy Warhol Bridge I will now go inside the Andy Warhol Museum.

Andy Warhol was born in Pittsburgh on 6 August 1928 as Andrew Warhola.
When he was 21, he moved to New York, where he died in 1987.

He was undoubtedly one of the leading and most influential artists since WWII. Many of his works are iconic. I will show some of them in the next posts.

In 1989 it was announced that Pittsburgh wanted to honour his most famous son with a museum and in 1994 the museum was opened with a 24-hour celebration.
The Warhol building, originally built in 1911 as a distribution center for products sold to mills and mines, was redesigned by architect Richard Gluckman and features seven floors of gallery and exhibition space. .
The Andy Warhol Museum tells Andy Warhol's story and exploration of his legacy through the largest collection of Warhol art and archives in the world.

I begin this tribute to this original artist on the 7th floor of the museum, where much of the relatively unknown early work from the 1950s is exhibited.
Among other, a large number of fascinating drawings, often with text.
The woman on the right on the first picture is looking at one of the works from the series “I Love You So”.
