ON-Lion Letter
A new exhibition at the Milwaukee Art Museum (MAM), Andy Warhol:  The Last Decade, is the first in a U.S. museum to explore the work that this seminal American artist produced during the final years of his life.  Warhol entered a period of renewed vigor and enthusiasm in the 1980s that resulted in what was arguably the most-productive period of his career. 
 
In this last chapter of his 40-year career, Warhol was producing paintings like never before.  He participated in the leading edge of the painting revival of the 1980s, revisiting his Pop Art innovations while forging a new synthesis of painting and screenprinting.  He introduced abstraction into his artistic vocabulary, produced his signature "fright-wig" self-portraits, and revealed his Catholicism.

The exhibition runs from late September to January 3, 2010.  Tickets may be purchased online.

Milwaukee's Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation substantially supports MAM.  The lead sponsors for Andy Warhol:  The Last Decade are Sue and Bud Selig and Debbie and Mark Attanasio.
