The Brant Foundation Lecture Series and SUNY Purchase School of Humanities Presents:

  Michael Lobel: Insights About the Andy Warhol Exhibition

Andy Warhol presents the first comprehensive survey of Warhol’s oeuvre from The Brant Foundation Art Study Center’s collections, a homage to one of the most influential artists of the second half of the last century. The exhibition reflects Peter Brant’s lasting passion for Andy Warhol’s work, a rare long-time commitment, which began more than four decades ago.  It was Brant who very early in the artist’s career recognized the significance of Warhol’s work, in order to form a truly outstanding coherent collection, never-before-seen in any public institution. Lobel’s lecture focused on the way that Warhol’s work, considered together and in relation to contextual materials, offers us profound insight to Warhol’s approach to artistic technique.
